ABOUT THE ONLINE APPLICATION FORM : Please note that the online application platform used for the PolARTS call for proposals has been developed for the Swiss Polar Institute and is designed to support the management of scientific projects. The platform’s design, and in particular the part 1 (see below), unfortunately does not allow to register as a tandem and hence does not reflect the true composition of applying tandems. We invite the scientific tandem partner to provide her/his details in part 1, as the requested information largely relates to academic references. These details will be used for statistical purposes only. The PolARTS project proposal must be uploaded in part 2 of the platform. It must include the full details of both tandem members and will serve as the basis for the evaluation of the proposed PolARTs project. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
