Europe for Citizens Programme – Networks of Towns 2020 – Round 1
Deadline of the call - 03/03/2020 17:00 (Brussels date and time)
Location - Member States of the European Union, Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, the Republic of North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo.
Objective: Twinning is a strong link that binds municipalities; therefore, the potential of the networks created by a series of town twinning links should be used for developing thematic and long-lasting cooperation between towns.
The European Commission supports the development of such networks, which are important for ensuring structured, intense and multifaceted cooperation.
Networks of Towns are expected to:
- Integrate a range of activities within at least 4 project events; such Network of Towns’ events are expected to have a defined time-frame and include different types of activities around the subject(s) of common interest to be addressed in the context of the Programme’s objectives or multiannual priorities.
- Have defined target groups for which the selected themes are particularly relevant and involve community members active in the subject area (i.e. experts, local associations, citizens and citizens’ groups directly affected by the theme, etc.);
- Mobilise citizens across the Europe: a project should involve a minimum of 30% of invited participants. "Invited participants" are travelling delegations from eligible partner countries other than the country hosting an event.
- Serve as a basis for future initiatives and actions between the towns involved, on the issues addressed or possibly on further issues of common interest.
