“START – Danube Region Project Fund”: First call for proposals open!

Attention: The call is already closed!

The first call for project proposals of the new initiative  START – Danube Region Project Fund is officially launched. The call will be opened from 18th of July until 17th of September 2014. All relevant documents for the application can be found in the START section of the PA10 website.

START – Danube Region Project Fund is a new pilot initiative of the EUSDR and provides Seed Money for the development and implementation of Danube Region projects. Seed Money means that beneficiaries receive an early pre-financing in order to cover the project expenses from the very beginning. This should help especially small organisations with limited resources to START their projects. START is coordinated by PAC 10 of the City of Vienna, with the involvement of all Priority Areas.

START EU grants can range from € 10.000 to € 40.000 per project. In addition, project partners must co-finance at least 10% of the total project costs, from their own resources or other (non-EU) sources.

Applicants have to complete the START application form, which will be online on the PA 10 homepage from 18th of July until 17th of September. The completed applications have to be submitted through an online application tool, which will be opened from 15th to 17th of September, 24:00 CET. The link to the online application tool can be found on the 1st page of the application form.
