In the first cut-off of 12 September 2016, 16 proposals were submitted. Of this number, 2 proposals were identified as incomplete due to formal deficiencies (List no. 2 - List of initiatives unapproved to provide institutional support) by the Commission for accepting project proposals (hereinafter "the Commission"). Remaining 14 eligible proposals were evaluated by the Commission in terms of meeting the objectives of the Call and the programme area. An outcome of evaluation, when 12 proposals were found to be consistent with the objectives of the call, was subsequently discussed with the Programme Committee of the Czech-Norwegian Research Programme CZ09 (hereinafter "the Committee") which agreed with the outcome of the Commission.
The minister, on the recommendation of the Commission and the Committee, approved the provision of institutional support for a total of 12 initiatives with financial range from CZK 200,000 to CZK 800,000 (List no. 1 - List of initiatives approved to provide institutional support). Therefore, the MEYS is going to support the initiatives approved for their implementation in the total amount of CZK 6,650,000.
