Communication to all project partners and organisations with applications:

First and foremost, we hope you are healthy and able to cope with your work and the care of your children. The Palatin Foundation is aware that many of the projects that you are planning or implementing need to be adapted.

We therefore ask all project partners with ongoing projects to send an interim report to the Palatin Foundation by 31 July 2020. Please use only the new application platform for which you have already received the login data. If you have any difficulties with the software, please contact us by e-mail at

Let us know which (time) plan changes and/or concept adjustments you had to make and which cost changes resulted from these. If you are planning specific projects to support your target groups within the Corona crisis, please contact us.

All organisations with ongoing applications are kindly requested to make possible adjustments to their application via the application platform by 3 April at the latest. Please do not send us any e-mails regarding this.

We wish you good health and courage during this time.
