Full proposals go through the same cycle but will be in addition decided on by the Assembly of Governors, AOG
The individual steps of the assessment of proposals are:

  1. Review and ranking of the Proposals by SAG
  2. Discussion and assessment of the evaluation by EC, decision on funding or rejection
  3. SAG and/or EC may table a proposal and request for an addendum to address minor open issues
  4. Following a successful workshop a Full Proposal can be submitted to ICDP for a review by SAG, recommendation by EC and approval by AOG  

Instructions for proponents are detailed in the guidelines for proposals.
