1.6 Frequency of the call for projects

 

Some calls for projects remain open throughout the LEADER programme. Others, on the other hand, set a relatively short deadline for submitting proposals; in some cases, new calls for projects are launched at regular intervals. The table below gives certain points for thought when deciding upon which frequency to use for calls for proposals.

 

FREQUENCY OF THE CALL FOR PROJECTS
Call for projects one call alone at the beginning of the programme invitations to tender open throughout the programme or once a year
Advantages
  • rapid implementation
  • strong one-off mobilisation
  • allows more flexibility
  • leaves time for unprepared actors to acquire the means to do so
Disadvantages
  • leaves little time for project leaders to prepare their offer
  • the mobilisation effect can weaken over time
Aim
  • calls targeted at specific socio-professional groups
  • to limit the number of project leaders (when funds are limited, for example)
  • to carry out the action within a specific repayment schedule
  • to provoke a demonstrative effect among the population and give rise to new proposals
  • to implement actions which are an extension of others.
