Instructions and form for the proposition of research by RU's
Rules for the submission
Each project proposal will refer to one specific Task among those defined by the project responsibles, and guarantee the production of one or more deliverables among those listed within that Task. The proposals will be prepared according to the GNV submission form, and must include reference to the results from other Tasks of the same project necessary for the development of the proposed research.
Each participant (including project responsibles) can be responsible of a maximum of one RU. RU's and Tasks do not coincide: more than just one RU can apply to the same Task, same Workpackage, and same Deliverables if this can be of help for the best achievement of the project objectives. Each RU can apply to a maximum of two Tasks within the same project, and to a maximum of two different projects (or sub-projects). Each project proposal must refer to one single Task, and include a list of other Tasks and Work-packages the RU is also applying to. If the same RU requests financial support for the acquisition of resources (instruments, personnel, or other) which are also useful for the accomplishment of the research proposed in another Task within the same or different project, the related financial request must be included in the proposal pertaining to only one of these Tasks. The proposals pertaining to the other Tasks (even if within a different project) will be formulated assuming that these resources are available, will include a reference to such resources, and will indicate the Project number and Task number under which the financial request for such resources has been formulated.
The FORM FOR THE GENERAL 2-YEAR GNV PROJECTS to be submitted by the project responsibles to the Evaluation Committee is established by the INGV decree N. 387 dated 26/11/2004, and is reported below:
