The Europe for Citizens programme

For the period 2014-2020, twinning activities come under of the European Programme “Europe for Citizens”. Within the European Commission, DG HOME is responsible for the overall programme, whilst the management of the programme is undertaken by a specific Executive Agency.

For those who are interested in participating in this programme, we invite you to read all the detailed information on the programme, which is on the Executive Agency website, and in particular the programme guide which is available there in all the EU languages. The Agency’s website also includes a useful set of frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers. Projects dealing with twinning (town twinning and Network of Towns projects)  are funed under Strand 2: Democratic engagement and civic participation.

However, we wish to give you the main information in order to help you to understand the rules and make your involvement easier.
