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.

    Calls for project proposals 2021-2022

    The first call for project proposals is now opened, with the aim to exploit the untapped potentials and challenges across the Alpine regions. Interested organisations are warmly invited to submit proposals across all specific objectives under thematic priorities 1, 2 and 3 through classic or small-scale projects.

    The selection procedure varies according to the typology of cooperation, as classic projects follow a two-step procedure while small-scale projects follow a simpler and quicker one-step procedure. The budget earmarked for classic and small-scale projects is a maximum of €25m and €5m ERDF, respectively.

    The submission deadline for classic projects (in step 1) is 28 February 2022 while for small-scale projects is 22 April 2022.
