In 2016 we will adapt the evaluation and cut-off rhythm. This shall allow us to inform applicants faster, in particular during summer and at the end of the year. At the same time we will decouple the evaluation of the phases which shall lead to a shorter time span for signing grants in Phase 2. During the transition period between November 2015 and February 2016 we will not be able to guarantee information to applicants for immediate resubmission.
This means that applicants who submitted a phase 2 proposal for the 2015 November cut-off may not receive the results of their evaluation by early February and might not be able to resubmit their proposal for the February 2016 cut-off. This is because applicants cannot submit two proposals simultaneously, and need to receive the results of the evaluation before resubmitting for the next cut-off
Thank you for your understanding.
