The system saved all their data until final submission. All relevant templates and documents were available under the Documents section of the website.
3.3. Submit your proposal online before the submission deadline
The AgreenSkills website and submission system ensured transparency and traceability of the proposals, while processing and securing exchanges in full respect of confidentiality and anonymity.
Each submitted application was assessed by up to 3 international reviewers, and then by the AgreenSkills Scientific Committee panels. The evaluation process took up to 10 weeks.
The AgreenSkills Steering Committee decided which research projects have to be funded, based on the Scientific Committee's recommendations and ranking.
