All applications require the vice-chancellor’s signature, both as coordinator and as partner

The vice-chancellor of Lund University must sign the application. To enable the vice-chancellor to sign, the relevant head of department and dean must sign the review document together with the project manager.  

External Relations handles the process for securing the vice-chancellor’s signature. This means that the review document must be completed, signed and submitted to the correct officer at External Relations no later than three weeks prior to the deadline.

If you send in your documents too late, External Relations cannot guarantee that your documents will be signed in time.
