Calls for proposals

We fund cooperation projects through calls
for proposals. Find out about open and upcoming opportunities and learn about past calls.

Timeline of calls

Our calls for proposals are open invitations to submit project ideas to our funding programme. 

We will launch a series of calls between 2021 and 2027 and the timeline below shows the progress we are making. In 2022, we already selected 53 new projects following our first call for proposals. In May 2023, we closed our second call with a funding decision expected in early 2024.

The third call for proposals is planned for the second half of 2024. Details of the call will be further discussed and decided by the monitoring committee in October 2023.
