STF proposal under EC/EFTA budget

STFs requests under the EC/EFTA budget can be presented at any time during the year and must refer to a Mandate or to one of the domains set in the Rolling Plan for ICT standardisation  (download the Technical Proposal Template, or see an example).

The Technical Proposal will be submitted for OCG/Board consultation (2 week) and, after resolution of comments, to EC/EFTA for evaluation.  

If the evaluation is positive, a contract will be established between the EC/EFTA and ETSI for funding the STF.

A new approval from OCG and Board is not required unless the EC/EFTA has made substantial changes in the scope of the Technical Proposal as a result of their evaluation process.
