Last week the Netherlands Space Office (NSO) received 27 applications for the third call for proposals of the G4AW Facility. Applicants will be formally notified about the receipt of the proposals before October 1st, 2017. NSO has started the formal procedure to evaluate the eligibility of the proposals for G4AW granting based on the threshold criteria. During the full assessment of the eligible proposals, NSO will be supported by various experts and Netherlands embassies in partner countries. NSO expects a maximum of 8-12 project proposals to be granted a subsidy in January 2018.
