If you have an idea for a project, which you think may qualify for funding, you should first read the documents published on the EACEA website inviting projects to apply. Ensure that your project falls into the subject areas covered by the specific actions.
Complete the relevant application package, taking care to ensure all information requested is provided. Once the form is completed you should submit it before the deadline. Proposals which fail to respect the deadline will not be accepted. You should therefore ensure that you have proof that your proposal was submitted in time.
Applicants who are successful in the selection process receive a Grant Agreement/Decision from the Executive Agency. The Grant Agreement/Decision indicates the grant awarded and sets out the rules to be applied. Payments are usually made in instalements.
The Executive Agency monitors the implementation of the project throughout its life cycle. In situ projects visits may be undertaken in some cases.
At the mid-term or at the end of the contractual period, applicants are required to submit an interim or final report providing information regarding the project providing implementation, results achieved and expenditures incurred. When the report is approved, the interm or final payment are made.
