Know the formalities
At the start of the application process it is especially important to pay attention to the formalities that determine whether you are eligible or not. For example, some schemes require that only public entities can apply or that the partnership must represent at least three countries. Also note that some foundations use electronic application forms to be uploaded/completed. It may take time to acquaintance yourself with these, and they may also limit the format of your application. Furthermore, obtaining signatures and collaborative statements from participants may also be a requirement. This is a task that can be time consuming, so it’s an advantage to start early.
