We bring preliminary results of Capacity Building open call. The Selection Committee recommended 10 projects across all artistic areas.

23 applications were received in the open call lasting from the end of November 2019 until mid-April 2020 exceeding the available allocation (cca EUR 1 million, double of the allocation) . More than half of them were prepared with project partners from Norway and Iceland. From 21 applications, which were evaluated by independent experts, the Selection Committee recommended 10 projects for support. The list with preliminary can be downloaded below.

The verification of the evaluation process started in September 2020 and it has been confirmed the evaluation managed by the Arts and Theatre Institute (Programme partner) was held in a transparent manner in line with the rules of the EEA Grants, programme Culture and the open call.

Due to the continuing verification process of applications recommended for support, these results are preliminary and may change including the grant size (e.g. resulting from conditions set by the selection committee including budget cuts, conditions of applied state aid regime or other suggested changes). In case the conditions for grant approval are not confirmed by applicants or the an applicant withdraws his application, the Programme Operator informs applicants, whose applications are on the reserve list in order confirmed by the selection committee.

Final results will be published on after the verification process is concluded as a whole (expected in the second half of October 2020). Applicants will be notified via IS CEDR and data box. Information about the evaluation of individual applications will not be available.

In order to strengthen umbrella organizations, the Programme Operator is determined to increase the allocation of this open call to support some of reserve list applications and repeat the open call. The decision shall be made in cooperation with programme partners and donors.

Supported projects will be gradually introduced on our website. All of them shall contribute to better representation of needs and interests across various artistic areas and help its members in their professional growth.
