Funds for CIVITAS National Networks (CIVINETs)
CIVINET is a group of city networks that promote the CIVITAS approach at a local level, overcoming language and contextual barriers for local authorities and organisations interested in urban sustainable mobility. Members exchange information in their own language working together to engage with the European Union and national governments, about transport policy issues, legislation, regulations, and funding.
Organisations are invited to submit activity proposals for the period spanning February 2018 – July 2019, including establishing new CIVINETs. Proposals corresponding to the following types of activity are invited: Capacity building events – where your organisation prepares workshops, seminars and webinars and provides expert advice to members, Transfer and take-up activities – where your organisation hosts fellow members for peer-to-peer exchanges on specific measures, (i.e. site visits), study tours, work placements, undertaking feasibility studies (among other things), CIVITAS Dissemination – where your organisation prepares local language promotional material such as postcards, the “Welcome to CIVITAS” booklet, roll-ups; e-courses/learning material, thematic group content etc, Other activities – where, for example, your organisation establishes the CIVINET network’s legal identity, raises awareness of your network outside the network zone and exchange with cities, particularly non-EU cities, or attends 3rd party events as speakers or participants - i.e. national conferences, trainings and consultations not organised by your Network.
Applications for amounts ranging between €10-11,000 are recommended per organisation. However, one may apply for lower or higher sums depending on their foreseen activities. The CIVINET activities fund comprises a sum of €30,000 for the establishment of 2-3 new networks.This call closes on 6 October 2017.
