Following a postponement of the initially announced official PON projects submission deadline from 28 May to 8 June, the Italian Ministry of Education has now extended the deadline for submissions of European Citizenships projects  to 15 June.
According to the official statement, the extension came as a result of an interruption of the computer service caused by network overload that has prevented normal operation of the whole system.
You will find a summary of all calls with the new terms modified for some procedures in the official announcement you can read here (in Italian).
Specifying that some terms have remained unchanged, the Ministry calls for collaboration in spreading out this information as much as possible.
