Call 2009: New funding opportunities in health
The European Commission has published the Work Plan for 2009 for the implementation of second programme of Community action in the field of health. The publication of the Work Plan was followed by the calls for proposals. The Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC) published calls for proposals for projects, operating grants, conferences and joint actions. The calls present new funding opportunities for the European organisations active in the area of public health. The total budget available for the execution of the 2009 Work Plan is 48.2 million euro.
All proposals should address important problems in the European public health and be in line with the Commission's priorities expressed in the Work Plan. The successful proposals should concentrate on aspects of public health that cannot be achieved on a national level. They should ensure a significant impact across the EU. The deadline for submission of proposals is 20 May 2009.
