Answer:

Answer: 

Third-party involvement can be mentioned in the body of the application but currently there are no specific fields requesting this information.
All technical questions regarding the application form should be addressed to edctpgrants@edctp.org directly, and for specific questions on the different types of participants to be added in a proposal, please contact the Project Officer (see name and e-mail in the Call Text) in charge of the Call.

Answer: 

It is correct that in case of applications in two stages, at the Letter of Intent stage there is no requirement to include figures, charts or other graphics in submitted proposals. In the Letter of Intent stage of this call, the only criteria that are used for the evaluation of the proposals are Excellence and Impact.

EDCTP aims to keep the Letter of Intent stage as simple as possible. At the second - full proposal – stage, the quality and efficiency of the implementation in addition to the Excellence and Impact criteria are evaluated. The application form will be equipped with upload functions where applicants can upload supporting documents such as charts.

In general, if attachments are required for a specific section of the Letter of Intent or the full proposal, the form will have the necessary upload function, e.g. for the call 'Strategic actions supporting large-scale clinical trials', cofunding letters can be uploaded and attached to the Letter of Intent.
