As the organiser, first contact the author or author duo and arrange a date for your event.

You can only conclude contracts with the author or author duo once you have received written confirmation of funding.

In addition, the project must be open to the public. Exceptions apply to internal school events.
The project must not have been started by the time the grant is confirmed. This includes public relations work, conclusion of contracts, awarding of contracts and payments.
