The Romanian NGDO Platform – FOND is pleased to announce the extension of the Regional Mobility Fund for Experts in the Black Sea Region and the Balkans (non-EU) for the period 3rd of February 2016 – 31st of March 2016.
The objective of the Regional Mobility Fund is to encourage the mobility of civil society/ think tank/ academic experts in the region to foster knowledge sharing, expertise and exchange of best practices within the framework of enabling environment for CSOs and the Istanbul Principles.
The mobility proposed has to be part of an activity with clear medium-long term result in the field of enabling environment, focusing on the three major dimensions: legal framework, policy influencing and donor – CSOs relationships, according to CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness – CPDE’s monitoring framework.
The Regional Mobility Fund is open to civil society, think tank and academic experts from the following regions: the Black Sea and the Balkans (non-EU).
The Mobility Fund will cover mobility costs (transport, accommodation and meals) for conferences, seminars, working and coordination meetings, study visits, mentoring and training activities in which the applicants are resource persons, within the framework of enabling environment for CSOs and the Istanbul Principles.
The Regional Mobility Fund is awarded on an individual basis: financing entire activities is not an objective. Instead, the program will cover: transport (including local), accommodation and meals costs.
The application process for the Regional Mobility Fund is flexible, as the receipt and assessment of the requests for support will be done in an ongoing manner. The only time constraint is that the activity for which one applies should be implemented during the period 3rd of February – 31st of March 2016.
For more details regarding the Mobility Fund and the application process, we kindly ask you to read carefully the following documents:
