Every year, the Marco Polo work programme outlines the main themes, priorities and criteria.
The Marco Polo Work Programme 2011 was adopted by the European Commission on 31 March 2011 and a Commission Decision revising the Marco Polo Work Programme 2011 was adopted on 19 October 2011 (C (2011) 7317 19.10.2011) . As already announced in December 2010, due to the foreseen changes to be introduced in the Marco Polo II Call for Proposals 2011, the actual Call text laying down detailed rules for submission and selection of specific actions to be funded under the Programme in 2011 will be adopted separately from the Work Programme 2011. The Marco Polo II Call for Proposals 2011 was published on 21 October 2011. Please note that the conditions specified in the Work Programme might differ slightly from the text of the Call 2011. However, the Call text 2011 will be the only reference document to prepare proposals to be submitted under the Call 2011.
