Timing for the application of a working grant
There are four evaluations per year, one per quarter. The budget that is available for grants during the year is divided into four envelopes, one per quarter. Every quarter, the envelopes are distributed across the selected applications. If the envelope is not completely spent in one quarter, it is transferred to the next quarter. It is therefore a "rolling fund". However, it is possible that the jury allocates the available budget before the final deadline. If that happens, the final deadline is cancelled.
The deadlines for 2016:
- Wednesday 11 May 2016
- Friday 15 July 2016
- Thursday 15 September 2016
- Tuesday 14 October 2016 (if not cancelled)
All deadlines are for 11.59 pm Brussels time.
