Appeal procedure

At the end of the selection stage applicants have the possibility to appeal against the decisions of the IMBRSea Selection committee.

You cannot make an appeal against the outcome of your selection status, the appeal can only be against the selection procedures followed.

The IMBRSea Coordination Office will be responsible on behalf of the IMBRSea Selection Committee to inform the applicants about the outcome of the selection phase before 15 April 2017 for applicants that applied in the first application round and by 15 June for applicants (only EU) that applied by 1 June 2017. Applicants have the right to appeal within 15 working days from the publication of the selection results on the IMBRSea website and the notification thereof by email to all applicants.

The email has been sent 14th of April, so you need to send in your appeal for this first Edition of IMBRSea by May 8th at the latest.

The IMBRSea Appeal form contains detailed rules about how and when submitting the document. The appeal form should be signed, dated and send by email to imbrsea@ugent.be

Once the IMBRSea Coordination Office receives the appeal form, the sender will receive an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail. The appeal will then be investigated by the IMBRSea coordinator and the IMBRSea Coordination Office and if needed extra feedback will be obtained from the IMBRSea Selection Committee.

Within 20 working days, the appealer will receive the outcome of the appeal with the reasons for rejecting or accepting it.
