The Office of International Relations must be kept informed about planned project applications. The EU advisers at the Office of International Relations provide guidance for project managers during the application process; our advisers have expertise in principles and priorities in the Erasmus+ programme.
For applications for centralized initiatives (knowledge alliances, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master or capacity building projects), the Office of International Relations can - in addition to providing guidance itself - put the project manager in touch with relevant advisers at DIKU who have expertise in providing guidance for such project applications.
Signature by NTNU's Legal Representative #
All Erasmus+ applications must be signed at Rector level. The Office of International Relations is responsible for handing over the applications to NTNU’s Rectorate. To enable quality assurance of applications and ensure that they are signed in time for the project’s deadline for applications, it is vital to keep the Office of International Relations informed about applications that are in progress. The applications must be sent to International Relations well in advance of the deadline for applications.
