News archive - Project co-financing by the Central European Initiative

Among other roles the Central European Initiative (CEI) can be considered a donor organisation which provides co-financing to various projects proposed by its 18 Member States (Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine).

Possibilites for co-financing ASO-Call-project proposals dealing with the topic "South Eastern Europe's Scientific Response to: Biodiversity protection, climate change and energy scarcity" are promoted by CEI and ASOs (Austrian Science and Research Liaison Offices).

Since the issues regarding the environment and energy are high on the list of priorities of the Central European Initiative (CEI), the following instrument would be recommended for co-financing projects within the ASO-Call "South Eastern Europe's Scientific Response to: Biodiversity protection, climate change and energy scarcity":

CEI Cooperation Fund: within this fund, the CEI offers co-financing of seminars, workshops, conferences, etc. in various sectors. Eligible projects should have regional character and involve participants from several CEI countries, especially non EU countries. In this framework, the CEI supports projects up to 50% of its total cost, but not more that EUR 30.000 per project.

Next deadline for application: April 1, 2008
