Call for proposals - Operating Grants for two specific programmes related to Justice JUST/2013/JCIV-JPEN/OG Closed!


This call for proposals is aimed at supporting the existence and the functioning of organisations - such as non-profit organisations, voluntary associations, foundations, NGOs or similar bodies - pursuing an aim of general European interest or having an objective forming part of the European Union policy, to enable them to carry out a set of activities over a period which is equivalent to the organisations' financial year starting in 2013.

  • Civil Justice (JCIV)
  • Criminal Justice (JPEN)
