The Delegation of the European Union in Georgia invites non-governmental organisations and business associations registered legally in Georgia to submit concept notes for a pilot project promoting the European businesses and economic interests.
The project aims to encourage the coordinated and proactive actions of business, support the implementation of Association Agreement and the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), and pursue the EU’s economic diplomacy interests.
The indicative budget is €100,000-150,000. The exact size of the grant will depend on the quality and scope of the proposal. The indicative implementation period is one year. Co-funding by the applicants is encouraged.
Depending on the successful implementation of the project, the EU Delegation could consider providing publicity to the grantee as the main EU business association partner in Georgia. The awarded organisation could become a key interlocutor on European business and economic topics for the EU Delegation and HQ (notably DG TRADE and DG NEAR). In addition, a “verification/endorsement letter” could be considered to be issued at the end of the project implementation by the EU Delegation, to the European Business Organisations Worldwide Network (EBOWWN), a network with over 250 experts on trade, investment, policy and representation of business in 45 markets outside the EU.
The deadline for applications is 16 April 2021.
