The following calls for proposal might be in areas of interest for your Equality Body, but you are eligible to apply only if in partnership with others. Participating in such a consortium would be a great way to collaborate with others, and if you are interested, there are many ways to find potential partners. For example, you can use the ‘partner search announcements’ to indicate your interest, as well as checking with local NGOs you would like to work with. Equinet can also share calls within the membership if anyone has a proposal and is looking for NEB partners – so if you have an idea, let us know!
Deadline: 25 May 2023 – 17:00:00 Brussels time
