Third Call

(the call was closed on 18th November 2011)


The 3rd call has been the result of a strategic exercise whose main objectives were:

1) To generate strategic projects in some key intervention area, which:
- can not be generated by a conventional call for proposals (and were identified by the MC - following also a stakeholders' consultation process - in the developed Terms of Reference part of this Call);
- are directly contributing to the implementation of key European policy objectives;
- generate incisive technical/sectoral impacts (integrated and interdisciplinary approaches) and create synergies with other projects/programmes/initiatives);
- are politically relevant and sustained. In other words, they either engage with an issue which is evidently already the subject of public action or political debate; and they generate a certain level of public interest within society in general;
are significant for the entire co-operation area, or at least for large sections of it. Accordingly, the outcomes and effects attributable to a project will have to be relevant also to those areas which are not directly involved in the project, through i.e. sustained dissemination action, specific provisions for the uptake and sustain-ability of projects' outcomes, etc.

2) To integrate fully the potential stakeholders of the Western Balkan countries (as well as from Ukraine and Moldova) into relevant strategic projects by developing an integrated im-plementation model.

The call has followed a two steps approach and the application process were managed electronically, via the SEE Website.
- Step 1 is represented by the submission of the Expression of Interest (EoI)
- Step 2 is represented by the submission of a complete Application package, including an Application form.

Important information

The call will be open from 28.04.2011. The EoI has to be submitted to the Joint Technical Secretariat (JTS) until 17.06.11 (18:00 pm Central European time). Based on the experience of the first call, we strongly advice the applicants not to wait until the last days to upload the expression of interest, as the server may be overloaded and they may have problems with the submission. No files will be accepted after the deadline.

The technical assessment of the expressions of interest will be carried out by the JTS and the results will be then discussed by the Monitoring Committee that will finally take a decision on the expressions of interest to be invited to the second step. The duration of the assessment period is depending on the number and the quality of proposals received, therefore we cannot provide a date for the announcement of the results of the first step. The results will be publicized on the SEE website as soon as the Monitoring Committee takes a decision on the selection.

Please note that only the expressions of interest selected after the first step will be invited to submit a complete application for the second step of the call.
