CALL FOR INTEREST
For projects supporting coordination of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region Priority Areas (Technical Assistance support)
Danube Strategy Point invites Priority Areas Coordinators to present project proposals for Technical Assistance support with the objective of supporting coordination of Priority Areas of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (hereafter EUSDR).
Technical Assistance provides financial support in order to help Priority Area Coordinators in coordination and implementation of the EUSDR (in respective Priority Area) and facilitation/preparation of integrated projects.
Project proposals are to be submitted by Priority Area Coordinators. Although each Priority Area Coordinator is to submit its own project application, applications must be coordinated and synchronised with other Priority Area Coordinator(s) on the level of the Priority Area. Projects selected for financing must present clear connection and contribution to the Action Plan defined for the Priority Area (including planning, targets, indicators and timetables) as well as effective measures for (facilitating) cooperation between project promoters, programmes and funding sources.
Priority Area Coordinators must, for the preparation of their project proposals, use the templates provided by the DSP. Each project application has to contain full, detailed and complete information with regards to eligibility, procedures, co-financing rates and all other relevant details.
Please note that the conditions laid down in each document of the application will be binding on the successful applicants; so please read them carefully.
The maximum total amount of Technical Assistance support per project is 60,000.00 EUR.
Reimbursement of 95% of the eligible costs of the project (up to the maximum total amount of Technical Assistance support) applies.
