Deadline for applications: 16 April 2012

Anna Lindh Foundation: €1.35 million call for projects to promote Intercultural Dialogue
The Anna Lindh Foundation (ALF) has launched a Call for Project Proposals for 2012 worth a total of €1.35 million, aimed at supporting projects that promote the mobilisation and empowerment of civil society. Around 50 projects are expected to be awarded through this call.

A press release said the call was in line with the Anna Lindh Foundation’s ‘4D’ Strategy, which conceives Intercultural Dialogue as a civil society mobilisation factor, aimed at valuing Diversity, promoting the participation of the society in building open and plural Democracies, and fostering inclusive and sustainable human Development.

The overall financial envelope for this Call for Proposals is €1,350,000, with:
  • Minimum grants available at €20,000
  • Maximum grant available at €35,000
The Anna Lindh Foundation financial support will not exceed 80% of the total eligible costs of the project. 
The ALF supports ONLY multilateral projects built upon a 1+1 partnership formula according to the following:
  • at least one organisation from the following European countries: Albania Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom; AND
  • at least one organisation from the following Southern Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, Turkey. 

The association of more organisations (more than 1+1) from the 42 member countries of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership may be considered an asset.
Priority will be given to projects developed and implemented in real established partnerships, where the partners already know each other and where all of them will contribute to the project planning, sharing tasks and responsibilities for the implementation of the project.

Previous granted projects by the ALF showed, that in several cases, unclear and non-solid partnerships create most of the challenges and difficulties faced in managing and implementing the project, therefore applicant needs to have an active and concrete partnership when submitting the project proposal. 

The duration of the project must be between a maximum of 12 consecutive months and a minimum of 8 consecutive months, and the duration of the implementation must fall within the period between 15 July 2012 and 15 October 2013.

The deadline for application is 16 April 2012 at 16.00 hrs Egyptian Time (GMT+2).
