Applications

 
    Applications for funding can be submitted during calls for project proposals.

    Calls are opened regularly, with the publication of terms of reference describing the programme’s expectations in terms of content. The programme will co-finance both small-scale and classic projects.

    Applications for small-scale projects can be submitted on an ongoing basis, and decisions on project selection are taken twice a year.

    Calls for classic projects are open for about two months. Classic projects are selected following a two-step application procedure: in the first step, applicants submit a short version of the application form via the Joint Electronic Monitoring System (Jems). Promising proposals will be invited to submit a detailed application form.
