7 Tips for writing TMT proposals 

The application round for TMT proposals just opened (deadline 19 September at 11.00 CEST). With the opening of this application round, we would like to help you to improve your proposals! We want to share a short list of commonly made mistakes with you, so you will not make the same mistakes.  

7 commonly made mistakes for submitting TMT proposals: 
1. Rules regarding the minimum amount of required co-funding are not met;
2. No signed consortium agreement;
3. Forgetting signatures on documents;
4. Exceeding maximum fees;
5. Not being specific enough in the "other costs" section;
6. Using aged/old versions of documents, please use the documents offered on the TMT call page;
7. Emailing documents instead of uploading them in Delta.
