You can fill out, save and edit the Questionnaire before the end of the collection of applications for a particular track you have chosen. However, the application is not considered submitted until the Questionnaire is sent for examination.
The deadlines for the collection of applications for tracks may differ and will be placed on the web pages of each track. If the exact date is not specified on the track web page, look up the overall project schedule.
After sending an application for a track, it gets to the premoderation process. If the application is completed correctly, then it goes to examination.
If the application does not meet the requirements of the track listed on its web page, or the information about the project is not sufficient to give it an initial assessment, the application will be rejected and the grounds for the rejection will be sent to the applicant.
If the application needs to be finalized, you will receive a notification. However, such a function is only possible for applications sent for examination before August 30, 2017.
When sending an application for examination before August 30, 2017, the applicants have the opportunity to receive comments from experts, and make the necessary changes to the application. After revision, re-sending should be done before the deadline for the track you have selected.
Independent return of the application for completion by the applicant is not possible.
The GenerationS rules do not stipulate simultaneous application for two tracks. You need to select one track, which corresponds more to your project.
If your application is rejected while the call for any other track is still open, you can apply for an available track.
Once you have submitted your application, you cannot modify it. You can make changes to the «preliminary application», which is permanently available for changes and is used to apply for special nominations. Also, the data from the «preliminary application» can be used to re-apply for another track (if your first application is rejected).
