European City Facility new call for applications
On 9 June, the EC initiative opened its fourth call for applications with a budget of almost €3 million, aiming to support 48 cities and their associations in developing investment concepts for climate and energy projects.
The European City Facility has deservedly become one of the EU's most popular support initiatives for local authorities, providing €60,000 in support for the development of local investment concepts. The aim of this webinar is to present the main aspects of the application procedure, the development of investment concepts, the selection criteria as well as information on the mechanisms available to effectively support local authorities in the process. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about the experience of Bulgarian municipalities and to address their questions to the national expert.
The new call for applications will close on 30 September 2022.
