Czech Republic announces first open call for proposals
On 18 May 2005, the Czech Republic became the first beneficiary state of the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism to issue an open call for proposals, making a total 10.7 million euros available for applications under the financial mechanisms established by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
Under the call, a total 5.4 million euros has been allocated to applications for Individual Projects within nine of the Czech Republic’s 14 regions. Additionally, another 5.3 million euros are allocated to applications at a nation-wide level for Individual Projects in the priority sectors European cultural heritage, protection of the environment and health and childcare. In total, the two financial mechanisms will make available 111 million euros to projects in the Czech Republic over a five-year period until 2009.
