Information seminars for LAT-RUS applicants

The Programme is organising a number of information seminars for potential applicants in Latvia and Russia to provide information on the contents and the application procedures of the call for proposals. The participants will be offered useful hints on how to fill-in and submit the project proposal (concept note).

Beside the information on the LAT-RUS call, two seminars (in Rezekne and Pskov) will provide an opportunity for networking and exchange of project ideas in the thematic areas of the call. To find like-minded potential project partners, participants interested in any priority of the Thematic Objective 1 “Business and SME development” are invited to register for the seminar in Pskov, Russia. While participants interested in the Thematic Objective 6 Environmental protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation and willing to network with organisations in the environmental sector, are invited to attend the seminar in Rezekne, Latvia.

The other two seminars in Valmiera and St. Petersburg will not include the component of partner search and will be of local character where information will be delivered in national languages without translation.

In order to prepare the partner search activities, you are highly recommended to fill in and submit the project idea form available on the project website ( until 1 June 2017.

Very specific questions on the concept note can be clarified during individual consultations with the staff members of Joint Technical Secretariat during all four seminars.
