Preparing for step 2: the Lead Applicant Seminar was a triumph!

Feb 14, 2024

How to write a good project proposal? What are the key budgetary and legal issues to consider? How can a project be communicated effectively?

Over 60 representatives of lead applicants, selected for the second step of Call 2 for Classic projects, gathered in Salzburg on 6-7 February 2024 for two days of training, networking, and consultations with the Interreg Alpine Space.

The Joint Secretariat (JS) and Managing Authority (MA) shared tips on how to write the best application form and efficiently manage a project through a series of presentations and workshops.

  • A quality application form: intervention logic and outputs (by Nuno Madeira, JS)
  • Project management: workplan and timeline of activities (by Rainer Steindler, JS)
  • Communication: target audience, branding and visibility requirements (by Denise de Roux, JS)
  • Contractual and legal issues: partnership agreement, subsidy contract, state aid and public procurement (by Christina Bauer, MA)
  • Budget: eligible expenditures, budget planning, (by Magdalena Friedwagner-Maislinger and Wolfgang Schrattenecker, MA)
  • Wrap-up and next steps (by Matteo Decostanzi, JS)

All presentations are available here.

Thank you to all the participants and good luck for the second step – we can’t wait to see how your project ideas will benefit the Alpine region!
