Visegrad: Extended Standard Grants (Eastern Partnership)

The aim of the Extended Standard Grants within the V4EaP pro­gram is to sup­port medium-term projects of strate­gic char­ac­ter that sig­nif­i­cantly con­tribute to pro­vid­ing access to the unique expe­ri­ence and know-how of the Visegrad Group coun­tries with the processes of demo­c­ra­tic trans­for­ma­tion and inte­gra­tion and with regional coop­er­a­tion.

  The Extended Standard Grants are meant to sup­port reform processes, political asso­ci­a­tion and eco­nomic inte­gra­tion with the EU, strengthen the insti­tu­tional capac­ity, con­tribute to the devel­op­ment of civil soci­ety and the over­all trans­for­ma­tion of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) coun­tries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine).

  Projects sub­mit­ted to the fund must involve grantees and project part­ners from at least three V4 coun­tries and a sin­gle EaP coun­try. Projects are solicited through pub­licly avail­able calls for pro­pos­als. The over­all bud­get for the pro­gram in 2014 (more than €1.3 mil­lion) con­sists of finan­cial con­tri­bu­tions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands and Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden. Deadline: September 22, 2014. More information is here.
