As soon as your application has been approved, you will be notified via e-mail. The notification of approval will contain information on the amount of funding that will be paid out and will cover all modules applied for. Attached to the e-mail there will be a Written Statement of Commitment that you have to sign and send back to us.
If applicable, the person who will receive funding in the framework of Module 2 will receive an individual letter of grant approval. In addition, they will have to sign agreements covering the grant payment.
Both the applicant and the person traveling in Module 2 (if applicable) will be sent information sheets for the respective module(s). These will include extensive information regarding administrative steps necessary for the payments and the preparation of the stay(s) and/or event(s). The obligation to comply with the regulations and processes mentioned in these sheets is a compulsory part of the Connecting Young Scientists (ConYS) program.
Once all activities funded by ConYS have been completed, you are obliged to submit a final report within four weeks. Reporting obligations are a mandatory element for receiving funding within the framework of ConYS. A template for the report will be made available. In addition to the report, KHYS will send you a link to an anonymous online evaluation regarding general aspects of the funding measure. Once we have received the final report, we will issue a certificate regarding the participation in the Connecting Young Scientists Program (ConYS).
For monitoring purposes, KHYS will also ask you six months after the completion of all activities to assess in what ways the activities have supported your career strategy.
