Following the success of the previous year, the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (EaP CSF) Secretariat is launching the 2nd Call for Proposals in order to support projects of the EaP CSF members with a regional dimension that can contribute to achieving the mission and objectives of the EaP CSF.
This call aims to support the work of the five thematic Working Groups of the EaP CSF. Applicants are encouraged to develop proposals that would contribute to the effective policy-making and advocacy of the objectives of the EaP CSF at the EU level. They should focus on advancing reforms in the EaP countries and should encourage activity of the civil society in policy domains where the civil society has not been active so far. The projects proposals should particularly focus on connecting the envisaged activities with the interests and needs of the wider public. Proposals that comply with more than one of these objectives are especially encouraged.
The specific objectives, priorities for each Working Group and the application process are described in the Guidelines for Applicants.
Any project funded through this Call for Proposals should cover at least three EaP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) with the aim of developing results with a regional perspective.
The overall amount for this call for proposal is 307.500 EUR. Any grant requested under this Call for Proposals must fall between the following minimum and maximum amounts:
- minimum amount per project: EUR 10.000
- maximum amount per project: EUR 25.000
Proposals must be submitted to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org by 21 February 2016, midnight (24.00 CET).
