Bilateral call GGCBF02 re-launched!
On 15th March 2023 the Programme Operator – the Ministry of Investments, Regional Development and Informatization of the SR launched an updated bilateral fund call GGCBF02 for grant applications in the field of transparency, good governance and responsible institutions under the program "Good Governance and Cross-Border Cooperation".
The aim of the bilateral call GGCBF02 within the Good Governance and Cross-border Cooperation Programme is to contribute to the strengthening of bilateral relations, improvement of cooperation, mutual knowledge and understanding between Slovakia and donor states in the area of transparency, good governance and responsible institutions, provided that the beneficiary and partner (s) are actively involved in preparation of the initiative and its implementation. The GGC Bilateral Fund will support balanced partnerships (bilateral or multilateral) that will benefit all parties from cooperation.
Updated call includes following changes in comparison with the original call:
- The call is no longer aimed primarily at digital cooperation,
- The total allocation was increased from 30,000 eur na 106,287.19 eur, as well as the maximum grant to be applied for from 10,000 eur to 30,000 eur,
- If the amount of the grant exceeds EUR 25,000, after the agreement with the Program Operator, it is possible to provide an advance payment of up to 80% of the amount of the grant after signing the Agreement.
This call generally supports complex and longer-term initiatives instead of one-off activities. Taking into account principles of proportionality and the grant amount provided under this Call, complex initiatives combining various bilateral activities are expected. Welcomed are series of cooperation activities with a particular result, including round tables or discussions that will be logically planned.
Funds in the amount of EUR 106,287.19 have been allocated within EEA and Norway grants and the state budget of the Slovak Republic for a bilateral fund call GGC operated by the Ministry of Investments, Regional Development and Informatization of the Slovak Republic.
