The deadline for the 2017 selection procedure was 6 June 2016 (24:00 CET). Project outlines received after the deadline cannot be considered.
We are currently evaluating all project outlines received before the deadline (first stage of the procedure). Please refrain from enquiring about the status of your application during this time.
In the final quarter of this year, we will inform all applicants of the result of the evaluation of their project outline and invite those who have submitted promising outlines to present a formal funding application. The form to be used for the funding application will be sent together with the invitation for submission. The decision on funding will be based on the final appraisal of the specific funding application by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (second stage of the procedure).
