In relation to the publication of the 2019 calls for proposals for grants for information provision and promotion measures concerning agricultural products, Chafea will organise an info day for potential applicants.
Speakers from the European Commission and Chafea will present the Annual Work Programme 2019 as well as the calls, and will take the participants through the call conditions, in particular the eligibility criteria. Potential applicants will have an opportunity to ask questions during the dedicated Q&A sessions.
The info day will also feature a presentation of export opportunities for agri-food products in third countries, and a de-briefing on the own initiatives of the European Commission.
The participants will also have the opportunity to learn from experience of the beneficiaries of the currently running campaigns, as well as the EU umbrella organisations from the main product sectors.
The event will include a match-making session aiming to bring together potential applicants looking for partners in view of submitting joint applications for funding. All presentations will be web-streamed and available on the portal for the period of 2 years.
