Call for proposals opens in October

Submitted by Henna on 19.09.2019 - 13.59

A call for proposal relating to Priority 3, Clean and comfortable region to live, and focusing particularly on waste management and preserving/improving the biodiversity of the Programme area will be opened on October 1st 2019 and closed on December 5th. The overall indicative amount made available under this call for proposals is EUR 5 043 597.

An infrastructure investment component minimum of EUR 1 000 000 needs to be included in the project proposal. The call is one-phased. 

The Call is opened with a suspension clause, meaning that before signing of the Grant Contracts a prior approval for the changes to the Joint Operational Programme by the European Commission is needed.

The funding now available was originally reserved for large infrastructure projects. One of the projects was cancelled which is why a call for proposals, where infrastructure components are emphasised, is now opened.
