How? Simple and easy! Submit your project proposal here and demonstrate that your project builds a bridge between young people and decision-making.

Five steps of the Open call

 

1. Get informed

 

Read the information available on this site carefully and check if it matches your project idea. Find out what kind of proposals can gain support and what the OPIN toolbox is best suited for. Take part in the introductory webinar and get all your questions answered!

 

2. Request a technical feasibility check (optional)

 

You may request a feasibility check by 31 October 2016 by providing a short note here, stating the technical requirements of your eParticipation project. This step is not obligatory. However, we strongly advise you to take it, in order to ensure that your project is technically compatible with the OPIN toolbox. You will get feedback for your requirements and have the possibility to prepare the final application.

 

3. Submit your proposal

 

You can submit an application electronically, in English, between September and 31 December 2016 (by 12:00 CET). Use the online form here.

 

Each applicant is allowed to submit only one proposal under this call.

 

4. Get selected

 

A jury composed of 9 members will evaluate all proposals based on these criteria by 3 February 2017. The selected projects will come from at least 5 different European countries and will cover different levels (local, regional, national, cross-border or European).

 

Selected projects will receive 70% pre-financing and 30% after the evaluation of the final report. The selected organisations will have to sign subcontracting agreements. Read more.

 

5. Realise your project

 

Selected projects will be invited for the introductory training course. Afterwards projects can start from March 2017 and must provide a report by December 2017. You will be invited to share your story with other practitioners and experts of eParticipation.
