NEWSLETTER First Call Update | December 2021

There are 85 days left to apply to our first call for project proposals! 

Together with more than 1.100 people, we launched the call in an online event on 15 November. Since then, we have been busy preparing tailored support and personal guidance for our applicants: Before tomorrow's Q&A webinar, we have published new tutorials and tools on the call and opened a space for individual consultations on the applicant community.

Live Q&A webinar: Join us tomorrow and send your questions in advance

This first Q&A webinar will be hosted on our applicant community. It will address specific questions that you might have after reading the call-related documents and watching our video tutorials. More than 500 people have already registered and posted their questions. If you have a question, too, do not wait until the event starts: Post it now on the Slido tool! And for those that cannot join us tomorrow, we will record the webinar and soon upload it to our YouTube channel.

Project development: Watch our new tutorials on content and finance issues

If you want to get more familiar with our first call and find out how to develop a successful project proposal, have a look at our new video tutorials. These will guide you through the process of designing your intervention logic and inspire you on how to develop a good project work plan including communications. They also address the planning of a sound project budget and State aid.

Additional call support: Find new templates and tools on our website

When we launched the call we promised to regularly provide you with additional tools and templates. We have now updated our programme website and added templates for the subsidy contract and partnership agreements as well as a self-assessment tool for the financial capacity check of private lead applicants. A tool to generate project summaries will follow soon.

Individual consultations: Discuss your project idea with our programme experts

Since 29 November, we are offering non-compulsory individual consultations of project ideas. All lead applicants can book a 45-minute slot with programme experts on the applicant community to discuss the relevance of an idea or concrete content and finance issues. Please note that an idea should ideally be in an advanced development stage already, since only one consultation can be offered per idea! Consultation slots will be available until 11 February 2022.

National support: Get in touch with your national contact point

Last but not least, we recommend to also get in touch with our national contact points in all nine programme countries. In addition to general call information, they can provide you with specific national information and assist you throughout the application process. They also organise national info days.
