By Decision 1904/2006/EC of 12 December 2006 the European Parliament and the Council adopted the 'Europe for Citizens Programme' for the period 2007-2013, which put into place the legal framework to support a wide range of activities and organisations promoting ‘active European citizenship' and therefore the involvement of citizens and civil society organisations in the process of European integration.
The Europe for Citizens Programme builds on the experience of the previous Programme which ran from 2004 to 2006. The current Programme was proposed by the Commission after a large consultation with the different stakeholders and an ‘ex ante’ evaluation, which has identified the need for an intervention at Community level and the expected impact of the Programme on the sector. Thanks to these experiences and reflections, this Programme of second generation demonstrates a certain level of maturity, combining continuity and
The Programme will run from 2007 to 2013.

Measure 3: Support for projects initiated by civil society organisations

Specific Objectives

The aim of this measure is to support concrete projects initiated by civil society organisations belonging to different participating countries. The implementation of activities with a strong European dimension will enable civil society organisations to enhance their capacities and reach wider audiences. Direct cooperation among civil society organisations established in different Member States will contribute to foster mutual understanding on different cultures and to identify common values. While this may be in the form of single projects, a longer-term approach will also ensure a more sustainable impact and the development of networks and synergies.

Project should have one of the following forms, either ‘Event projects’, that consist mainly of conferences; seminars; colloquia; workshops, debates; hearings; meetings; training activities; socio-cultural activities.
‘Production and realisation’ projects, that consist mainly of publications; websites; TV/radio broadcasts; production of audio-visual material; opinion polls; studies; analysis; production of education and training materials; application of new information technologies.

How is the activity financed?

Under this measure, the grant can be calculated following two different methods, corresponding to different approaches and to which specific rules apply:

•  Grants based on flat rates for ‘event projects’

Experience shows that most projects proposed by civil society organisations are composed of different kinds of events. A simplified type of grant calculation is applied to this category: the grants are
calculated based on the number of participants in the events and the number of days. Additionally, a lump sum will be allocated based on eventual final products (publication, DVD/CD-ROM, internet site).

• Grants based on actual costs for ‘production and realisation projects’

Grants for projects mainly composed of activities other than events are calculated based on a detailed provisional budget. The grant requested in that case may not exceed 60% of the eligible costs of the
action concerned. Payment of the grant will be based on a detailed final statement accompanied by supporting documentation for the expenditure.
