The application procedure opens on 10 January 2022 at 12 noon (GMT) and an application submitted by the closing date of 28 January 2022 at 12 noon (GMT) will be treated as a punctual application.  

An application received after 12noon (GMT) on 28 January 2022 will be treated as a late application.
