European Commission Launches Information Measures for the EU Cohesion Policy Programme Call 2024

Funding from the European Commission for the production and dissemination of information and content linked to EU Cohesion policy.

The European Commission has launched the Information measures for the EU Cohesion policy for 2023 call to provide support for the production and dissemination of information and content linked to EU Cohesion policy, including the Just Transition Fund, or relevant support under the Recovery Plan for Europe or from the Technical Support Instrument.

The proposals should provide coherent, objective and comprehensive information, in order to provide an accurate overall picture of the EU Cohesion policy. The proposals should illustrate and assess the role of Cohesion policy in delivering the EU’s political priorities and in addressing current and future challenges for the EU, its Member States, its regions and the local level.

The geographical scope of the call is focussed on EU Member States, including overseas countries and territories (OCTs). The information measures should include one or several activities such as:

  • Production and distribution of print, multimedia or audiovisual material.
  • Web and social media outreach activities.
  • Media events.
  • Conferences, seminars, workshops.

The project should lead to the following outcomes:

  • For the general public: increased public awareness of the results of Cohesion policy and their impact on citizens’ lives to Europeans who are unaware of the EU and of the EU action in their region. Information should focus on developing greater understanding of the contribution of Cohesion policy to boosting jobs and growth in Europe and reducing disparities among Member States and regions.
  • For stakeholders: enhanced stakeholders’ engagement (including national, regional and local authorities, beneficiaries, businesses, academia) enabling them to further communicate the impact of Cohesion policy on their regions and to feed into the discussion on the future of Cohesion policy and, more broadly, the future of Europe.

Projects should normally last for 12 months.

Applications may be submitted by legal entities (public or private bodies) established in EU Member States (including overseas countries and territories (OCTs)). International organisations are eligible.

A total of €7 million is available for the call. The maximum grant amount is expected to be around €300,000 per project.

Applications should be submitted by the 9 January 2024 (17:00 CET) deadline.
