Submission Deadline

All submissions must be made by 17:00 Brussels local time, September 28th 2023.

Electronic Submission

Proposal submission is exclusively in electronic form using the proposal submission tool accessed via the link below. Proposers are encouraged to submit draft versions in advance of the deadline, which may be updated (replaced) up to the submission deadline.

Proposals must be submitted in English.

The central component of proposal submission is the completion of administrative information within the online submission system (which will include information about all proposal participants) and the uploading of a PDF-document (whose individual size must not exceed 5.0 MB) compliant with the instructions on proposal structure given below.

Part B (the main section of the proposal) must not exceed 10 pages in length (excluding the Part B cover page). The Part B text should be no smaller than 11 point Arial font. Proposals submitted with a Part B whose length (excluding the cover page) exceeds the 10 page limit will be rejected without further evaluation.

The call announcement and proposers’ guide, downloadable as a [PDF document], explains the expected structure of the proposal in addition to the evaluation criteria to be applied. Key questions to be addressed in the evaluation of proposals is given in the proposal evaluation check-list (see below).

It is a requirement that the downloadable proposal exemplar is used: available here [Word].

The proposal exemplar document includes, in particular, an embedded spread-sheet for budget data.
