Orientation dialogues

Dialogue conditions

The orientation dialogues provide a high-level orientation to project promoters, focusing on potential project outline and questions related to the call text and general orientations within the framework of the call text. There are seven time slots available and they are provided on a first come first served basis. 

Project specific questions, whether related or not to specific award criteria or methodologies, must be avoided and will not be answered during the orientation dialogue. Such questions can only be answered via the official helpdesk.

This is important to ensure equal treatment of all applicants. Please note that the orientation dialogues cannot pre-judge the outcome of the official evaluation procedure.
