Did you make an application to Europe for Citizens in February or March of this year? You may be wondering when you'll get news of your results and how are grant decisions made. Read on...
The EACEA employs external 'experts' to review applications; carefully chosen professionals with experience in relevant areas of citizenship and remembrance. The experts take three weeks to review all applications and discard approximately 33% of the weaker ones (those scoring less than 50 out of 100). Next, the internal Europe for Citizens team at the EACEA review those remaining.
Once the second review is complete, a final list of proposed projects is presented to the Europe for Citizens Committee, composed of representatives from DG Home, the Head of Unit and other stakeholders. They make the final grant decisions and four months after the submission deadline the selected projects are published on the EACEA website.
Note: The Wheel will contact any successful Irish organisations directly too. We're hoping for good news!
