Do you have a project idea in the field of civic education that lacks funding? Are you a member of a young NGO in civic education and searching for financial support? Then apply for the call for projects of Civic Innovation Fund launched by THE CIVICS Innovation Hub and get a chance to make your project come true! Within CIF funding, each project receives between 10,000-12,000 € for piloting, incubation and scaling up for the period of 12 months.
· Projects should be startups in the sphere of civic education that focus on strengthening democratic competencies that promote participation, cohesion, and resilience. Project ideas can range from workshops, cultural interventions, eyewitness talks, exhibitions, scientific studies, scenario methods, to apps, or augmented reality storyboards.
· Projects should relate to one of the NECE thematic areas (you can find them on the bottom of this page).
· Projects should be caried out by at least 2 partners from different European countries in a transnational partnership. The partnership can be set up across sectors, but one of the partnering organisations should come from either the formal or non-formal/informal civic education sector.
· Projects should incorporate the principles of diversity, interdisciplinarity, inclusivity, intersectionality, and intergenerationality.
Deadline for applications: 1 September 2023
The projects chosen for the 2023-2024 funding will be invited to present their ideas at the NECE Festival 2023 FUTURES! (Madrid, 30 Nov – 2 Dec 2023). Moreover, participants will have the opportunity to showcase the outcomes of their projects at NECE Festival 2024 BORDERS! (end of 2024).
