One of the heartfelt concerns of FOMOSO is the promotion of people, organisations, initiatives and ideas that emphasize the exchange, integration and cooperation in Central-Eastern and Southeastern Europe (MOSO for short) or in Europe and strengthen the European development and the integration of the MOSO region.
That is why FOMOSO has set up a small fund since 2022, which is used to support political, social and / or cultural projects from or in MOSO. Once a year – application period from May 1st to 31st – an open call for proposals for all kinds of political, social and cultural project ideas is opened in this context. A maximum of 1 to 2 projects are selected from this. The grants per project will be a maximum of 300 – 500 euros.
Non-governmental organisations (NGOs), civil society organisations, municipalities, schools, universities, institutions (research institutions and scientific institutions) as well as associations, initiatives and committed groups (a minimum of three people) can participate in the tender.
Our funding can be used for different phases of a (joint) project – development, testing, establishment, dissemination, etc. – and at different times.
Since our grants are still manageable, there are no strict funding criteria yet. It is important, however, that your idea and the associated concept are qualitatively convincing, understandable and have an impact-oriented structure. In addition, there must be a connection with Central-Eastern and Southeastern Europe (MOSO). Ultimately, we attach great importance to interactive, participatory, integrative, creative and/ or cultural contributions. Your idea and concept can be submitted using the online application form.
The project ideas presented, which are received via the online application form, are assessed by an internal decision-making body. This committee will ultimately also make the selection decision for the 1-2 projects. No later than 30 days after the end of the application period, we will let you know whether we are pursuing your project. In the event of positive feedback, we will invite you to a video conference and discuss the further process.
