Questions and Answers

Q:
What role do you envisage for the support organization?
 
A:
The envisaged role of the support organization is primarily to assist the NST in terms of organizational and logistical support during the implementation of the [NST’s] work plan. However, when applying for a grant the applicant support organisation should provide their own proposal/concept/idea of set of activities, objectives, outcomes and a work plan, by way of example, and to show how they would assist in implementing these activities. The activities proposed by the applicant must fall within the ROMACT methodology, which provides already an outline of [possible] objectives, outcomes and activities.”
