Program managers of the operator foundations were on duty until the last moment of the submission deadline, helping the applicants with any technical or other problems. The Operator Foundations will decide about the post-reception (or non-reception) of applications that were not finalized until the deadline due to justifiable technical problems, given the applicant NGO indicated it beforehand .

​Pre-screening will start in the following days after the deadline, the results are expected in approx. two weeks. Every applicant excluded on formal grounds will receive notification and in ambigious cases be asked questions if needed.

The content evaluation involving external experts will start after the pre-screening process is closed, based on the criteria announced in the call for proposals and described in detail in the rules of evaluation document. The evaluation is expected to be closed in Feburary. We will publish the results here on the website and all applicants will be notified.
