National thematic sites

If there is a clear thematic link between sites in a particular EU country, they may make a joint application as a "national thematic site".

A 'national thematic site' should comprise a reasonable number of participating sites and has to:

  • demonstrate the European added value of a joint application compared to individual applications;
  • show a clear thematic link between the individual sites;
  • ensure each individual site fully complies with the application criteria;
  • designate one of the participating sites as the coordinator, and single contact point for the Commission;
  • apply under a common name.

Each participating site must complete an application form and send it to the coordinator.
