Next steps

The approved small project and regular projects which will continue to the second step application phase will be assigned a contact person in the Joint Secretariat (JS) after the MC meeting. The JS will be in contact with the Lead Partner regarding how the process continues (applies to both small and regular projects).

The rejected projects will receive formal administrative decisions explaining the reason for rejection. These will be sent out once the MC minutes have been approved, realistically in August. Projects may after this contact the JS to get more information on the rejection and guidance on potential next steps.
