Welcome to the CORE Organic Cofund Call 2016/17 Please note that we have increased the max. nr of characters permitted in Part B4: „Description of the project“ may now contain max. 42,000 characters in total (it was originally only 24,000 characters.). Project descriptions from the pre-proposal phase already had up to 28,000 characters, corresponding to 5 pages. For the full proposal, we expect applicants to present a more detailed project description and add tables with all deliverables and milestones. This requires considerably more space. The mismatch between pre-proposal and full proposal requirements came about when we translated page-limits (as used for the pre-proposals) into character limits (as used for the full proposals). We simply didn’t allocate sufficient many characters per page. For some time you may still receive a warning from the online system when you exceed 24,000 characters. We will work on that as soon as possible. With apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, Arnd Bassler xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Please note that the FAQ document ( > Call documents ) is being updated continuously. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx PRE-PROPOSALS HAVE BEEN SELECTED AND NOTIFICATION LETTERS WERE SENT BY E-MAIL TO ALL PROJECT COORDINATORS.
