Preparation and Submission of Proposals, Contract Preparation

In order to allow a meaningful usage of the GSI resources and a more efficient management of the EU funded projects, researchers are kindly asked to proceed through a GSI internal three-step process, when they plan to submit a new proposal.

  1. In the very preliminary phase of the proposal preparation:
    GSI Pre-Proposal Form ("1. Pre-Proposal Form" sheet)
  2. Before the coordinator submits the proposal by EPPS: 
    GSI Proposal Form ("2. Proposal Form" sheet)
  3. Before the contracts are signed:
    GSI Contract Preparation Form ("3. Contract Form" sheet)

Please note that these forms need to be filled and authorized before you will receive signatures for any of the EU-requested documents (Proposal Submission Forms (PSFs), Grant Agreement Preparation Forms (GPFs), EU Contract)!

GSI Standard GPFs can be obtained at the Grant Office.
