• The second call for proposals will be held from 15 March to 13 June 2018 (01:00 pm Lisbon time).
• Based on the eligibility check and quality assessment of the full application made by the Joint Secretariat, the Monitoring Committee will make decisions on the proposals.
• Projects should be developed according to the type of actions the Programme wants to support and will have to be focused on delivering transnational, tangible and sustainable results and territorial and economic impact across the Atlantic Area.
• To prepare your application, please download and read carefully the supporting documents available in the relevant section.
● 15 March to 13 June 2018 (01:00 pm Lisbon time): submission of full applications
● End of October: Monitoring Committee approval decision
● A wide range of organisations, under public or private law, are potential beneficiaries of European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and may therefore join a project partnership. However, the Lead Partner must be a public or not-for-profit private organisation under national law.
● One key factor for high quality projects is the mobilization of key players, with a full range of relevant stakeholders and a well-balanced involvement of regions and a good geographical spread across the Atlantic Area.
● Project partners must be located within the eligible territory of the Atlantic Area regions. In duly justified cases, if the benefit for regions in the cooperation area is clearly demonstrated, organisations based outside the cooperation area in the EU or in EFTA may join project partnerships of the Programme.
● To apply you must submit a project proposal by means of the online application form, available in the section “Applications” before the deadline: 13 June, 01:00 pm (Lisbon time).
● You need to be registered as Atlantic Area community member and logged in, then click on Member Area. In the “Applications” section click on the Apply command and start filling-in the form. You can use the copy/paste option. Data can be saved at any time, then you can continue the completion of the form (note: we recommend saving your form regularly to avoid any data loss).
● Your application will be available in the “Applications” section and in your “profile” (top right hand side, click on your name).
● Once your application is ready and free of errors, you have to submit it before the call deadline through the “Submit” button. If your application has no error, you will receive an Email confirming the good reception and submission. Please note that you can verify at any moment if there are errors through the button “Validate”.
● After submitting the application you are still able to modify it until the call deadline. Every time you make changes you must resubmit your application, free of errors, through the “Submit” button.
● At any time you may open and consult your proposal.
● To avoid overloading the system, we strongly advise to submit applications well ahead of the deadline.
