Please complete the joint application form in consultation with your collaborator in Cardiff/Bremen and submit it online.

Letters of support from respective Dean of Faculty/Head of School/Division Director of both institutions will be required to accompany the application – one each for the University of Bremen applicant(s) and Cardiff University applicant(s). The letters need to confirm the institutional support for the proposal and any specific arrangements to be put in place locally to support the proposed activities.

Before completing this application form, please have the two letters of support ready as .pdf files to be uploaded.
Please note that that it is unfortunately not possible to work on the online application in different stages as intermediate steps in the application process cannot be stored temporarily.
