Visegrad+ Grants

Country: Europe;

Deadline: 01.02.2020



Visegrad+ Grants support projects which contribute to the democratization and transformation processes in selected countries and regions, especially non-EU member states in the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership countries.

  • Projects must develop meaningful cooperation and ensure active involvement of at least 3 V4 countries and 1 entity from the EaP region or the Western Balkans countries at minimum regardless of the applicant

  • Maximum duration of project implementation is 18 months

  • Grants cover up to 100% of project budget with maximum 15% of the requested sum for overheads

  • Projects must clearly address one of the objectives of the program´s seven focus areas and be implemented in the region of EU´s Eastern Partnership or in the Western Balkans

To apply for Visegrad and Visegrad+ Grants, your project must fit in one of the seven focus areas eligible for funding. Generally, specific thematic priorities apply to those Visegrad+ projects that target the countries of Eastern Partnership or Western Balkan countries. For Visegrad Strategic Grants, distinct strategic priorities are defined on an annual basis. Each project proposal should be identified with only one focus area and one concrete objective which best corresponds with the project’s aims. The focus areas and objectives to each grant program can be found on the Fund’s website. Please keep in mind that projects applying with objectives marked as “(Strategic)” in our system will be evaluated based on the rules applying for Strategic Grants. Should your application not comply with the criteria of Strategic Grants, the application will be considered as non-eligible. Although the Fund does not accept applications for Visegrad University Study Grant (VUSG) in the framework of a separate program any longer, universities are eligible and encouraged to apply for launching study courses within the Visegrad or Visegrad+ or Strategic grant schemes, following the rules and criteria valid for all applicants.
