We are now able to announce that the formal evaluation of the Expressions of interest submitted in the framework of the first call for project proposals has now been completed. We have received a number of 821 valid applications, which, in a first step, have all been carefully checked in order to ensure their formal compliance with the Programme requirements.

The applicants whose files have been found to be formally incomplete are currently being contacted via email and informed that their application does not qualify for the next steps of the call.

Thanking again all the applicants for their interest in the SEE Programme, we would like to point out that a negative decision in the first call does not preclude them from taking part in any future calls organised by the SEE Programme. We recommend regularly checking our Programme's website and keeping up to date with the latest developments.
