Launch of Call for national or transnational projects tackling discrimination.
The Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC) promotes and protects specific individual rights and freedoms that derive from European Union law. REC promotes gender equality, rights deriving from citizenship of the EU, children’s rights and Roma inclusion; and funds projects aimed at combating all forms of discrimination and racism and fighting violence against women, young people and children.
This Call for Proposals aims to co-fund national or transnational projects tackling at least one of the following grounds of discrimination of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU): racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation.
The Call will fund activities on:
- data collection and survey; monitoring the implementation of non-discrimination legislation;
- training of professionals;
- mutual learning, exchange of good practices, cooperation, including identifying best practices which may be transferable to other participating countries; and
- dissemination and awareness raising activities (including at local level), such as seminars, conferences, campaigns or social media and press activities. The total budget for the Call is €3.5 million and applications should be for grants between €75,000 and €500,000.
- Applicants and co-applicants must be a public entity or a private organisation, established in one of the countries participating in the Programme, or an international organisation. Profit-oriented organisations must submit applications in partnership with public entities or private non-profit-oriented organisations.
