Announcement of 13 December 2010

We regret to inform you that the European Commission has decided to abandon the awarding of grants in the framework of the Pilot Project on Investigative Journalism.

The grounds for our decision are:

On the basis of the continuous analysis of the conditions in which the pilot project would be organized, questions put by the potential candidates of the call for proposals and contacts with the initiators of the project, the Commission has come to the conclusion that conditions for the success of the project are not fulfilled.

The Commission has therefore decided to cancel the call for proposals.

Thank you for your interest in the project.

 Flagship projects in the framework of the European Year of Volunteering 2011

Council Decision of 27 November 2009 has designated 2011 as the European year of voluntary activities promoting active citizenship. The overall purpose of the " European year of volunteering" is to encourage and support the efforts of the European Union, the Member States, local and regional authorities, to create conditions conducive to volunteering in the European Union and to increase the visibility of voluntary activities in the EU.

This call for proposals is based upon the above Council Decision.

The purpose of this call is to support one or two flagship projects per Member State, which will receive a grant from the European Commission, in order to test and develop new and innovative schemes and approaches with a view to build long-term partnerships between civil society organisations operating in the area of volunteering.
