PIXNET Appeal Procedure
If a student candidate to the PIXNET programme is not satisfied with a decision relating to the admission to the programme or believe that the application has not been processed correctly, he/she may engage an appeal procedure.
The PIXNET programme is funded by EACEA and must follow the EACEA rules (Programme Guide - http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/resources/programme-guide_en ), which cannot be appealed.
Before submitting an appeal, please check carefully whether you have followed the given application procedure and submitted all of the documents required within the application process. The appeal cannot be used as an opportunity to provide new information not included in the original application. New evidence or additional information (e.g., additional certificates) cannot be taken into account. During the appeal the application is not given a full re-evaluation, but will only be checked for errors highlighted in the process.
Mobility assignment, as established in the call for proposal art. 9, comes after the ranking consolidation and it cannot be appealed.
We have distinguished two different kinds of appeal:
- Ineligible-candidate Appeals (not available) The eligibility check, performed by the coordinating institution, refers to the respect of the application deadline, completeness of the application file and eligibility of the candidate in relation to the PIXNET admission requirements. Candidates must submit an appeal regarding their eligibility status within 3 working days of receiving the ineligibility notice and consequent exclusion from the selection process.
- Non-selected-candidate or ranking position Appeals (not available) The selection check, performed by the whole Consortium, represented in a specifically appointed Selection Committee, refers to the quality assessment of the eligible applications, according to the criteria contained in the Call for Applications. Non-selected candidates or candidates willing to apply for a ranking position re-evaluation must submit an appeal within 3 working days after receiving the non-selected status notice and consequent exclusion from the selection process.
Candidates must submit their appeal via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org using the Appeal Forms below within the given deadlines, stating clearly the reason for their appeal and clearly describing the error(s) identified.
For Ineligible-candidate appeals should use this Appeal form.
For Non-selected-candidate appeals should use this Appeal form
Please note that appeals without an application number and date will not be taken into consideration.
