Advisors’ and referees’ comments are confidential to AGMARDT.
AGMARDT does not normally take ownership and/or management of intellectual property. It does, however, reserve the right to take a financial interest in intellectual property should this be agreeable to both the applicant and AGMARDT.
Project requests received after close-off dates will be held over for consideration. Applications may be considered throughout the year at the discretion of the General Manager.
It is AGMARDT’s policy not to provide reasons why applications are declined.
