Who can participate in the Europe for Citizens Programme?

On this page:

Direct beneficiaries of grants

The Programme is open to all stakeholders promoting active European citizenship. For example:

  • local authorities and organisations
  • European public policy research organisations (think-tanks)
  • citizens’ groups
  • civil society organisations
  • non-governmental organisations
  • trade unions
  • educational institutions
  • organisations active in the field of voluntary work
