The European Commission has launched a new call for proposals under Networks of Towns initiative.
Through the Networks of Towns initiative grants are available for towns with existing town twinning links to come together in thematic networks that address issues of common concern. Grants of up to €150,000 are available for conferences and workshops that address specific themes, involving towns from four eligible countries. These events should be the starting point for future joint initiatives between the twinned towns. Applications are accepted from municipalities and twinning committees, local and regional governments and associations representing local authorities. A project must involve municipalities from at least 4 eligible countries of which at least one is an EU Member State and the maximum project duration is 24 months.
The closing date for applications will be the 1st September 2017.
