Funding programs are an important source of finance during the time of economic uncertainty and additional fuel to finance business activities and societal processes at any time. EU funding programmes are designed to support research, development and innovation and advancement of specific societal priorities (environment and climate actions, audio-visual, cultural and creative sectors, education, training, youth and sports initiatives, etc).

In this page, we publish info on opened EU funding programs and calls at the international level and in CIVITTA home markets – program specifics, deadlines and contacts of our experts for further info on the program criteria, assessment of project ideas, chances for success and need for further support. Further, we provide access to our funding experts working on the field in 16 countries to develop the project applications and provide support through the project implementation process.
