16.06 - Overwhelming interest in the SEE Programme: more than 1000 Expressions of interest submitted in the first step of the first call for proposals!

The preliminary results of the first call for project proposals demonstrate the great interest and potential for transnational cooperation in the South East Europe Area.

A number of 1099 files have been submitted by the 13th of June deadline to the Joint Technical Secretariat. The JTS has already started the process of formally checking and registering the received files and will announce the final numbers of the applications by the end of this week.

We would like to thank the applicants for their evident interest in the SEE Programme and to invite them to check our website regularly in order to be up to date with the latest news regarding the South East Europe Programme.

Also, we would like to remind those who were not able to apply for the first call that the second call will be launched probably in the first half of 2009, at a date which has not yet been decided.
