Call for Proposals 2008

New Health Programme attracts significant interest from applicants

8 July 2008

Luxembourg (EAHC) - More than 220 applications for funding have been submitted to Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC) as a result of the first call for proposals in the framework of the new EU Health Programme.

The multi annual Programme for years 2008-13 that was adopted by a decision by Parliament and the Council on 23 October 2007, provides more diversified financing opportunities - funding for projects, operating grants, support for conferences in the filed of public health as well as tenders and joint actions with the Member States.

The applications sent to the EAHC are proposals for projects in the field of public health, especially actions tackling health determinants, such as smoking, drug abuse, alcohol or promoting physical activity and healthier nutritional habits . A number of proposals seek improvement in health security, better preparedness and response to health threats and help to improve risk assessment.

In addition, the EAHC has received 26 applications for operating grants and more than 40 requests for co-funding of conferences. The EAHC estimates that the total funding requested is 126 403 062 Euro and involves partners from all Members States and countries associated to the Programme.

Please note that the Call 2008 is now closed. The deadline for submission of applications passed on 23 May 2008.

New financial mechanisms and funding opportunities in 2008

To ensure appropriate participation in the Second Programme of Community action in the field of Health (2008-13) and fulfilment of all the programme objectives, a wider variety of financing mechanisms are offered.

Both the Programme and its Work Plan for 2008 foresee financial contributions for specific actions ('grants for an action') and support tothe functioning of particular bodies or specialized networks ('operating grants'). The actions may include typical projects but also the organisation of conferences.

The financial contributions may, where appropriate, include joint financing by the Community and one or more Member states or by the Community and the competent authorities of other participating countries.

Therefore, the 2008 financing mechanisms include:

If you wish to apply for funding through one of the mechanisms above, please click on the corresponding link. The deadline for submission of proposals to the calls is 23 May 2008.

The operating grants and joint actions will be implemented for the first time in 2008.

The corresponding reduction in the budget for the call for proposals for projects, and the greater focus on other financing mechanisms aim to maximise the efficiency and added-value of the financed actions, and to ensure that finances are channelled more directly towards meeting the Programme objectives.

Financing for conferences organised by the Presidency of the European Union, cooperation with international organisations via direct grant agreements, and other activities, are not explained in detail here. For further information, interested parties are invited to consult directly the Work Plan 2008.
