Call text in full


The application procedure for environmental research grants in clinical therapy treatment contains two steps. The following instructions apply to applicants, who have submitted an accepted project outline and who have subsequently received an invitation to provide a full application.

The full application (compared to the project outline) must contain the following information:

  • A more comprehensive project plan, which includes the specific intermediate goals to be reported and evaluated on a regular basis
  • More detailed descriptions under the call specific sections.
  • A complete specification of the budget.
  • A complete publications list.
  • Names of any participating researchers, together with their CVs and publications.

The full application also differs from the project outline in that it must be signed by the official representative of the administrating organisation. See further instructions below.

Any major discrepancies between the preliminary and the full application in regard to the research plan or the budget may only be introduced if the need for this has been raised by the review panel and communicated in the written statement to the applicant.
