Call for proposals - Grants to political foundations at European level 2012 IX-2012/02 Closed!


The revision of the Regulation (EC) Nº 2004/2003 recognised the role of political foundations at European level, which, as organisations affiliated to political parties at European level, ‘may through their activities support and underpin the objectives of the latter notably in terms of contributing to the debate on European public policy issues and on European integration, including by acting as catalysts for new ideas, analysis and policy options’. The Regulation provides, in particular, for an annual operating grant from the European Parliament, to political foundations which apply and which satisfy the conditions laid down in the Regulation.
