I have learned that a number of institutions intend to submit multiple proposals as "host". In doing so they interpret the guidance as only excluding more than one proposal with the same single theme. This would not preclude, for example, submitting one for theme 1, another for themes 1+2 and a third for themes 1+2+3. In short, all non-identical combinations of the numbers 1 thru 5.

Moreover, others interpret a proposal focused on Theme 1 but also explicitly addressing Theme 3 (a 1+3) as non-identical with a proposal focused on Theme 3 but also addressing Theme 1 (a 3+1). I believe you need to explicitly clarify these points before the LOI stage is finalized.

Our previous answer to this scenario stands which is "An Institution can be the Lead Institution for more than one Consortium providing that the themes addressed are not exactly the same: e.g. the Institution could be Lead for a Proposal for theme 1 and a proposal that addressed themes 1,2 and 3, but not two proposals that both addressed themes 1 and 3 together."  Unfortunately, we cannot anticipate all of the proposal development strategies and gradations that will be submitted and are unable to address each as we do not wish to preempt the review process.
