Quality and priorities

The European Commission receives many applications requesting financial support, whilst the budget available is limited: for this reason the application must not only respect all the rules and conditions, but should also to be of very good quality. In particular, it should explain how it contributes to bring Europe closer to citizens (and vice-versa) and should relate to issues which are on the EU’s agenda. The European programme sets out its longer-term priorities (see the programme guide); but there are also annual priorities which are set out in the programme guide, which is regularly updated.

It is also essential that you read the multiannual priorities so that you draft actions that respect not only the general and specific priorities described under the Programme Guide, but which also are in line with each year's priorities.

If you need more information or explanations you can contact the twinning contact officer of the relevant CEMR national association in your country.
