My collaborator has a joint appointment at two institutions of research. However, when applying via the GIF website, there is only one affiliation shown. What to do?
A PI can apply from one institution only, even if he/she is affiliated to another institution. We suggest choosing as institution for affiliation the institute where most of the research will be performed in the frame of GIF grant.
