PLEASE NOTE! After the application process was transferred online, we have noticed the tendency of some applicants to provide very short, insufficient answers to the questions in the electronic application forms. The forms have several open-ended questions whereyou are required to provide sufficient information on the proposed activity and its relevance for you and your institution.
