How to apply

Calls for proposals are published every two years. The next call for operating grants is planned to be published in April 2019. Detailed instructions on how to draft and submit the application are provided in the application guidelines published together with the call for proposals.

Indicative planning for 2019

The next call for proposals for NGOs active in the fields of environment and climate change will be published in April 2019 and will be open for around 6 weeks. The selected NGOs will sign a Framework Partnership Agreement with EASME, covering the financial years 2020 and 2021. Those NGOs will be then asked to submit their first yearly work programme in view of signing a Specific Grant Agreement for 2020.
