Type of activities

For reporting and monitoring purposes, applicants must indicate clearly on the application form (under “main type of activities”) which one of the four categories listed below best  reflects the core activities on which their proposal will be focusing. However, the proposal  may also include activities belonging to other categories.

  • Analytical activities: Carrying out studies, surveys and data collection activities  in the fundamental rights and citizenship field.
  • Training activities in the fundamental rights and citizenship field.

Budget

The funding under this call is provided based on the co-financing principle: the grant cannot  constitute more than 80% of overall eligible project costs. The organisations implementing  the action should ensure that the outstanding balance is covered from sources other than the  EU budget. The project budget must have revenue and expenditure in balance. Contributions “in-kind”, i.e. non-financial resources made available free of charge by third parties to the project, are neither an eligible cost nor are they accepted as income of the project. They cannot be included in the project budget. They can however be indicated in the application for information. The EU grant applied for shall be reasonable and proportionate to the proposed activities. There is no maximum limit, but a minimum limit: the grant applied for cannot be less than EUR 75.000

The Commission intends to organise a one-day “kick-off” meeting in Brussels for the successful applicants. The meeting will be dedicated to networking, project management, administrative aspects and reporting obligations. Therefore, the cost for participating at the seminar can be considered as eligible costs if they are included in the proposed project budget. Hence, the budget of the proposal should include travel costs to and from Brussels and 1 overnight stay (if necessary) for up to 1 to 2 representatives of the coordinating organisation (including at least the project coordinator but ideally also the financial coordinator if not the same person).

An organisation may submit several applications but with each application they shall propose  a different distinct project. Only one application will be accepted for any given project. In  case there are several applications for the same project the Applicant will be asked to clarify which application shall be evaluated. An organisation can participate in multiple projects as partner. Project coordinators can  participate as partner or associate partner in a project submitted by a different project  Coordinator

 

The deadline for submitting proposals via the PRIAMOS system is  12 March 2014, 12:00 (noon) Central European Time
