The main aim of the meeting was to discuss a topic that should be chosen as the supported area by the National Focal Point from the Fund for the next year 2015. The discussion showed that the proposed Focus areas are: Environment protection and Management, Justice and Anticorruption Policy. Research and Scholarship is the Focus Area for the Fund for Bilateral relations in this year. The applications that are submitted within these Focus areas will receive extra points within the evaluation procedure. Still one third of the allocation is left for realization of bilateral activities till the end of the Open Call (31st December of 2014). In addition the allocation for this year will be increased about 7% due to the changes of the exchange rate.
