Representatives of the PACs from Bulgaria and Bavaria participated in the START - Danube Region Project Fund workshop. The event took place on 11 July 2014 in Vienna and was organized and hosted by PA 10 “Institutional Capacity” and EuroVienna.
The objective of START is to “kick-start project development in the Danube Region and to facilitate the financing of transnational projects”.
START is to help organisations and institutions in the Danube Region to develop and implement their project ideas. The provided support is in the form of Seed Money, meaning that beneficiaries receive an early pre-financing for their projects. Support is mainly addressed for small organisations with limited resources to implement their projects.
START will run until 2016 and two calls for projects will be organised. The first call will be launched on 18 July 2014.
