Whether your civil society organisation is implementing an EU-funded project in one of the Eastern Partnership countries or in several, our Project is now able to support you with a variety of webinars, as well as a helpdesk where you can ask any burning questions you might have! The aim is to provide you with targeted support on specific issues you may be facing while implementing your projects. Given the different level of expertise and capacity, our Project will organise consultations with some bilateral grantees in early November to identify your specific needs for the upcoming webinars.
Helpdesk for EU Grantees
Our helpdesk can provide advice / support to grantees on issues such EU visibility and better public outreach, EU reporting, best practices in EU grant management, financial support to third parties / sub-granting (measuring impact, calls for sub-grantees, monitoring sub-grantees, etc.), making better use of digital tools for organizational management and communication, participation in policy-making processes, better advocacy and campaigning, better fundraising, other international funding opportunities available for CSOs, etc. If you want to start using the helpdesk, please fill in this ONLINE FORM, so we can provide you with specific advice you may need during the implementation of your projects.
