Corrigendum №1 

A. In order to support the applicants’ efforts to finance the elaboration of documentation related to infrastructure components and to adapt to different national requirements for the elaboration of technical documentation for infrastructure components projects, a grant may be awarded retroactively to cover such costs. However, these costs can be considered eligible for financing if they have been incurred between the launching of the first call for proposals (the 15th of February 2017) and prior to the date of the signing of the grant contract, if the project is to be selected. The signing of the grant contract is dependent upon the availability of the documentation for the infrastructure components as well on the availability of the building permit (if applicable).

B. In order to ensure better coherence between the eligibility criteria of having the operation of at least two years counted from the day of submission of the application and the proof that needs to be submitted, namely the copy of the Lead Applicants and Applicants approved and audited annual accounts for the last two financially closed years, a correction will be introduced. 

C. In order to correct a material error, ensure better flexibility and avoid as much as possible the risks of rejections of applications due to human errors, a completion phase has been introduced in the application process.
