  • If you submit more than one application for the same project, GSST reserves the right to evaluate only the latest received application.

Filling in an online application

  1. Application attachments:
    In the section "Information and attachments needed for the application" above, you can find important information about the various application elements. Please read this information carefully before you start your application.

    Please be aware that you cannot submit the application if one or several of these documents have not been uploaded.

    If you wish to upload more than one document under each section, you must scan/merge all documents into one large PDF document and upload this. Please note that we reserve the right to remove scientific papers, large reports, theses and the like. Instead you can indicate a URL where the information is available.

  2. When you have all your attachments and information ready, go to the online application facility and find the application form by clicking on the current open call and the programme/field in which you wish to apply, e.g. “May 2017” and “Engineering”.

  3. Fill in information and upload your attachments.

    Attachments must be pdf-files, max. 20 MB, no zip. All information in the application must be in Danish or English.

    Some of the information fields in the application have a little number outside of them to the right. By clicking on the number, you can find further directions on how to fill in the information field/what information is needed.

After submission of the application you will receive a confirmation e-mail with an application ID, you should use for reference if needed. The e-mail will also include a link to the application – GSST urges you to check that all mandatory data, marked with an asterisk (*), is registered correctly and all attached files are readable. In case of significant errors, you should reply to the confirmation e-mail with the correct details before the application deadline.

Please note: The programme committee may request further information or invite you to attend an interview.
