CEI Cooperation Fund Call for Proposals 2022 open

Deadline: 20 January 2023

Public and private institutions registered in a CEI Member State, NGOs/CSOs as well as international organisations, are invited to apply to the CEI Cooperation Fund for innovative actions favouring mobility and networking. Proposals need to focus on capacity building by transferring and sharing know-how, in particular from EU CEI Member States to non-EU CEI Member States. The activities can take the form of conferences, seminars, workshops, and training courses.

In compliance with the Joint Statement of the CEI Ministers of Foreign Affairs gathered in Sofia on 7 November 2022, a special line of action for Ukraine is set up within this Call for Proposals, aimed at providing support and mitigating the consequences of the current situation.

Proposals are to be in line with the CEI Plan of Action 2021-2023 and meet the criteria comprehensively outlined in the Call for Proposals.

The overall indicative amount made available under this Call is 360,000 EUR.

The budget is subdivided as follows:

  • Up to 180,000 EUR (one hundred eighty thousand EUR) for proposals aimed at the implementation of the CEI Plan of Action.
  • Up to 180,000 EUR (one hundred eighty thousand EUR) for proposals aimed at mitigating the consequences of the current situation in Ukraine and supporting the Ukrainian population in the country and displaced persons who flee from the country in the CEI Member States.

The ceiling of the potential CEI Contribution is 15,000 EUR (max 75% of the total project costs).
