Most of the grants are awarded following calls for proposals. A call for proposals is a public procedure launched by the Contracting Authority, addressed to clearly identified categories of applicants, to promote actions falling within the framework of a specific EU programme.
Grants are direct financial contributions from the EU budget or from the European Development Fund. They are granted by way of donation to beneficiaries that are engaged in external aid activities. The Contracting Authority awards grants that are used to implement projects or activities that relate to the EU’s external aid programmes.
