About our consultations and access to the application system
Officers of the Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat (MA/JS) consult project ideas from September 2017 until mid-January 2018. Consultations can be arranged as personal meetings in Rostock or Riga, or as online meetings. Participants of the information seminar in October in Riga can get a personal consultation on the spot on the second day. A consultation typically lasts one hour. As a basis for the consultation, the applicants need to submit a project idea form (PIF) prior to the consultation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the consultation has been carried out and the project idea has been found to fit the Programme scope, the MA/JS provides access to the online application system BAMOS to the applicants for filling in the complete application. It may take a few weeks from the consultation until the access is opened.
About the call
The following details of the call are subject to approval by the Monitoring Committee (MC) at the end of September. The third call for projects is open for all three Programme priorities: capacity for innovation, management of natural resources and sustainable transport, and for all specific objectives under these priorities. The call has a specific focus, that is to increase institutional capacities of public authorities in all levels of governance. All applying projects are expected to include public authorities with a relevant role in their partnerships.
The application procedure is organised as an extended one-step call, meaning that the concept note submission and selection carried out in the first and second calls is skipped. After obligatory consultations, the respective PIFs are sent to the MC for their review. The MC members may contact lead applicants with further guidance before the final applications are submitted.
The deadline for applications is early April 2018. For developing the project idea, we recommend to read our Programme documents and learn more about projects already approved. The announcement of the third call with all relevant details is published in early October 2017.
