Step 2 - Fill in and submit the eForm

In order to fill in your application eForm properly:

- please carefully read the Instructions for applicants. pdf en pdf 30/07/2010
The document contains useful information on how to fill in the application form and the budget form.

- please carefully read the Culture eForm User Guide.
It contains useful technical information.

The following annexes will have to be attached to the eForm and submitted on-line at the same time:

1/ the detailed description of the project, in word or pdf format (there is no template for this document).
2/ the signed Declaration on honour pdf enfrde (you should sign, scan and attach the document to the eForm)

The budget form is an Excel 2003 template.
You must enable macros in order to fill in this form.

The minimum requirement for Mac users is Office 2004. A known problem for Mac users is that the drop-down menu in column B of the ‘Detailed budget by activities’ part of the budget form does not appear. As no technical solution for this problem is available, we provide the list of values for this field here excel en. If the values are copied exactly (case-sensitive), the formulas behind the field work.

Advice for users of Microsoft Excel 2007: please make sure that you save your budget form in the format "Excel 2003 Workbook (*.xls)". This may appear in the 'Save as type' dropdown menu as "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)."

Information concerning Bosnia Herzegovina and Albania:

Bosnia Herzegovina and Albania will participate to the Culture Programme (2007-2013) as from 01/01/2011 onwards on the condition that a Memorandum of Understanding concerning their participation to the Culture Programme is signed by them and the European Union. Please refer to this website to have an update on this item.

Under the condition that for each of these countries the Memorandum of Understanding is signed by both parties and enters into force on 01/01/2011, organisations having their registered legal seat in Bosnia Herzegovina or Albania will be eligible under the Culture Programme as from 01/01/2011.

In the meantime, applications sent by organisations having their registered seat in Bosnia Herzegovina or Albania and starting as from 01/01/2011 will be provisionally considered eligible for the next deadlines of strands 1.1 and 1.2.1 (01/10/2010) and strand 2 (15/09/2010).

Coorganisers having their registered seat in Bosnia Herzegovina or Albania and involved in projects submitted under the above deadline for strands 1.1 and 1.2.1 will also be provisionally considered eligible.

If the Memorandum is not signed or is signed with a starting date later than 01/01/2011, the applications and/or coorganisers from Bosnia Herzegovina and Albania will be considered ineligible or eligible as from the date of entry into force of the Memorandum.
