Information Day 2011
Civil Protection Work Programme 2011
Thursday, 27 January 2011, Brussels, Belgium
On 27 January 2011, the Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection of the European Commission (Civil Protection Units) held an Information Day in Brussels (Belgium) on "Civil Protection Work Programme 2011".
The aim of the Information Day was to provide potential applicants with useful information on the 2011 Work Programme of the Civil Protection Financial Instrument, outline the priorities of the year and provide some useful guidance on the preparation of proposals and tenders.
The Instrument deals with civil protection and provides funding opportunities for a number of activities such as cooperation projects on prevention and preparedness, exercises, exercises on modules, exchange of experts, in the framework of the EU Mechanism.
Supporting relevant, innovative and cost-effective proposals is essential to allow a successful implementation of policy objectives. In order to ensure that the proposals and tenders comply with the required quality standards and to increase their success rate, the Commission informed potential applicants on the technical and formal administrative (legal, financial, etc.) requirements and criteria applicable.
The Information Day was intended for representatives of all the relevant stakeholders in the field of civil protection (national administrations, regional and local authorities, private sector, non governmental organizations, academies, research institutes).
