The Belgrade Open School (BOS) notifies all interested civil society organizations (CSOs) and media that there's an Open call for submission of project proposals under the Support Programme for civil society and media in the area of European integration (the Programme). The Programme will be implemented in the scope of  project "Civil Society as a Force for a Change in the Serbia’s EU Accession Process".

The deadline for submission of applications for participation in the Programme is Sunday, 22nd January 2017 until 11:59 pm.

The Programme lasts for three years, from October 2016 until October 2019, and includes two programme activities: 1. Support to CS4EU Programme Partners; 2. Capacity building and networking program. Project support and support of partner civil society organizations and media implies direct financial support, for at least 15 civil society organizations and media, in a form of core support (for at least 5 CSOs and media) and project support (for at least 5 projects of CSOs and 5 media). Total budget for the implementation of financial support to civil society organisations and media in the first year is 2,500,000 SEK, which is approximately 250,000 EUR.

The stability of democratic institutions, the rule of law and respect for human and minority rights are unimaginable without the active participation of civil society in the creation of public policies, and free media that inform citizens and encourage critical thinking. Civil society and media are recognized as those who can influence social change, the key actors of the democratic development and the direct beneficiaries of this Programme. 

The Programme is dedicated to strengthening of civil society organizations and media, as actors who are able to bring closer the European integration process to citizens, to explain the importance of social change, and to contribute to the inclusion of citizens in decision-making processes. Through this Program support will be provided to those civil society organisations and media, that ensure that the interests of local communities are adequately represented in the process of democratic development and Serbia's EU accession.

All information about the Programme, as well as necessary documents for submission of projects are located on the website www.transformator.bos.rs.

The project "Civil Society as a Force for a Change in the Serbia’s EU Accession Process" is implemented by Belgrade Open School with support from Sweden. Overall objective of the project is to contribute to EU integration and democratic development of Serbia based on increased role of civil society and media. Control and corrective role of civil society organizations and media is required for establishment and strengthening of rule of law and protection of human rights, which are the basic principles of European integration process. More about the project is available on www.transformator.bos.rs/o-projektu.
