Free webinars and training on EU funding and EU project management

Many EU funding opportunities are available for civil society organisations. Yet, access to EU funding can be a challenge: What are the programmes most relevant to my mission and actions? How do they work and what are their priorities? How can I write a good project application and therefore maximize my chances of success?
To answer these questions, we are happy to offer the community of Citizens for Europe two informative webinars on EU funds (open to everyone) and one practical training on EU projects application and management (open to 15 participants).
These tailor-made webinars and training have been developped with and will be provided by ALDA – European Association for Local Democracy, a key player which has carried out -in its 20 years of existence- over 450 European projects.


These webinars are addressed to those who wish to learn more about the EU funding schemes and priorities 2021-2027, in order to be ready to successfully approach and manage projects within the new European Programmes. The webinars are therefore designed for social and cultural operators, associations, etc. No particular previous knowledge or skills are required.
Through the proposed webinars, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • learn about the EU Multiannual Financial Framework in general;
  • be aware of the new EU priorities;
  • have an overview of the new Programs for the period 2021- 2027.
