The sixth call of Bioeconomy International is divided into 2 modules:
The German project coordinators (of both modules) have to first register to the submission tool and have to invite their international partner(s) of the consortium in the “PARTNERS” section for registration.After activation of the partner’s account by the coordinator, the partners abroad need to fill-in the required basic information.
Upon registration, the coordinator is enabled to navigate through the sections of the submission tool and provide all required information in the respective sections. This includes basic information (e.g. name, institute, email address, record of selected publications), CV details as well as project-specific information (e.g. project title, acronym, keywords, project summary, work plan etc).
After completion, the entered information can be validated by pressing the “VALIDATION” button. Missing information will be highlighted. Furthermore, there is the possibility to generate a “FACTSHEET” of the proposal that can be opened and saved as a PDF file.
The submission can be finalized by pressing the „SUBMISSION“-button.
The submission can be done several times until the submission deadline for necessary updates of the proposal content. Only the most recent version will be saved!
The submission tool will automatically cause a logout after an inactive session of 24 minutes.
In addition, the following mandatory requirements for the individual modules apply:
1. Module 1 is equivalent to module 1 in BI 2014, BI 2015, BI 2016 and 2017 (corresponding to the BI 2013-call). With this module German partners can be funded in international consortia, whereas the partners abroad have to demonstrate their own financing in a “financial commitment” (one letter per partner abroad). This financial commitment has to be submitted as part of the proposal in this submission tool. The document has to demonstrate the source of financing of the respective partner abroad (e.g. a commitment to spend institute’s/ company’s money for that project; a parallel application to another call for proposals …), the motivation of that partner to participate in the project and the distribution of tasks should be explained. The financial commitment letter has to be signed by the partner abroad and to be submitted by the German coordinator in the section “FINANCIAL COMMITMENT” as a PDF.
2. The module 2 has a counterpart in Vietnam. The Vietnamese coordinators of German-Vietnamese consortia are asked to submit the same proposals simultaneously in the respective tool in Vietnam. For formal issues regarding the submission procedure in Vietnam the applicants should contact Ms. Hoang Hien Hau (email@example.com).
