In addition, the application package must be sent by post by the deadline (the postmark serves as proof).
The application package to be sent to the Executive Agency must include a CD-Rom or USB stick containing all requested documents and mandatory annexes (please see details under respective Funding possibilities). The ones that could not be provided on CD-Rom or USB stick (for example: copy of the balance sheets and profit & loss accounts, copies of books proposed for translation) must be sent on paper.
Application packages are not returned at the end of the selection procedure.
Please note that no other method of submission of an application will be accepted. Applications submitted in any other way will be automatically rejected. No exceptions will be made.
Make sure that you have officially submitted your electronic application form and that you have received an e-mail acknowledging receipt of your submission.
