Capacity building sessions for members on writing EU applications and on advocacy

We are organising two capacity building sessions for members at the end of March / beginning of April.

The first one will be on how to write applications for EU funds and it will take place on March 24 from 12:00 to 14:00 at our offices. This session will be led by Rebecca Wagner from Heinrich-Boll-Stiftung. The following topics will be covered:

•    which instruments are suitable for my organisation?
•    how do I identify the right calls?
•    strategies to decide whether EU applications are added-value for my organisation
•    key issues to consider when developing EU fundraising strategy
•    exchange of experience.
