Third CIVITAS Activity Fund call to open on 30 March


The third call of the CIVITAS Activity Fund will be launched on 30 March 2015, focussing on the uptake of CIVITAS tools and offering a total of 60.000 EUR. The CIVITAS Activity Fund aims to support take-up activities in the field of sustainable urban mobility to cities across Europe.

The first call was launched in February 2014 and 11 projects of 22 that applied were selected for a total amount of co-funding of around 55.000 EUR. The second call is currently funding 14 projects. The new call hopes to build on this success and receive applications from cities interested in applying tools developed by the CIVITAS Initiative to improve urban mobility in their territories.   Co-funding of up to 50 percent is available to successful applicants across four take-up levels. The call differs from the first call earlier last year in several respects. Private entities working for and owned by public authorities are now eligible to apply.   The take-up levels will be the same as in previous calls:
  • Being inspired: Up to 50% co-funding for study tours, workshops or similar activities at the initial take-up phase;
  • Structural dialogue: Up to 50% co-funding for staff exchanges between take-up and donor cities; (in this framework also additional match funding to CIVITAS staff exchange processes can be provided);
  • Studies: Up to 50% co-funding for evaluation (long-term; impact and process), feasibility studies, etc.;
  • Systematic transfer: Up to 50% co-funding for feasibility studies leading towards pilot demonstration and implementation.
  Applications may be submitted by individual or groups of organisations that have not been or are not involved in projects already funded by CIVITAS. They must be established in an EU Member State or Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Israel, Kosovo, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland or Turkey.   The call will be open for five weeks and applications will be submitted online. The deadline for applications will be 6 May 2015. For more information about the third call, see the <link http: content activity-fund>CIVITAS Activity Fund page or contact <link>
