Expression of interest
The application process will normally start with an expression of interest. The description in the expression of interest is based on a basic set of questions. A template can be found in the online monitoring system. The expression of interest is a short form allowing the Steering Committee to decide whether a project proposal fits the programme and whether the proposed beneficiaries, activities, budget and anticipated results seem realistic in order to deliver the idea. Once you have completed the expression of interest, the next step is to send it to the Joint Secretariat electronically via the online monitoring system.
It is important to note that submitting an expression of interest is the first step towards approval of a full application. Only applicants with an approved expression of interest can submit a full application.
Once received by the Joint Secretariat, an assessment of the expression of interest will be carried out and a recommendation to the Steering Committee will be made. It is important to note that only the Steering Committee decides on a project.
Further information about the expression of interest can be found in the project life cycle.
