Call for proposals

A call for proposals is a funding round by which the funding is allocated for each scheme. A call for proposals is generally published around 3 months before the deadline. When it is published, normally this means that the new guidelines and e-form are available and you can therefore start completing your application. For most funding schemes or strands, there is one call for proposals each year.
