The Active Citizens Fund Cyprus aims to contribute to strengthening bilateral relations between civil society and other entities in Cyprus and entities in the donor states. Such a partnership could include networking, exchange, sharing and transfer of knowledge, technology, experience and best practice and should be reflected in the development and establishment of cooperation at project level within the project application.
Strengthening bilateral relations within the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus can be achieved in two ways:
- Open Call: Applicants are encouraged to include partnership with a ‘Donor project partner’ as part of their project application for the Open Call (See Section 3.2.2).
- Bilateral Fund Open Call: Applicants are encouraged to include a partnership with a ‘Donor project partner’ as part of their project application for the Open Call for Bilateral Fund. The Open Call for Bilateral Fund will be published in 2022.
The following Donor Contact Points have been set up to assist applicants to identify potential partners from the donor states for both the Open Call and the Bilateral Fund Open Call:
