Kosovo is a potential candidate for European Union membership. The EU is Kosovo’s most important political and economic partner, and top investor and donor. Funding programmes and cooperation extend across many areas – energy efficiency, infrastructure development, training for disadvantaged young people, cultural heritage…and much more. Many challenges remain, and significant progress is needed to strengthen the rule of law, tackle corruption, and work towards a cleaner environment. EU support to Kosovo seeks to build on progress so far and create a better future for its citizens.

Under this Call for Proposals, a number of long-term grants will be awarded to create and/or support regional thematic networks of CSOs in a range of thematic priorities. The networks financed will help improve coalition and capacity building for an increased impact of CSOs on relevant sector reforms. Financial support to third parties (“sub-granting”) will enable the participation of grassroots organisations across the region in the networks.
The Creative Europe Networks call will foster projects implemented by networks of organisations with membership in multiple countries that have a shared mission, governance rules, members' rights, and obligations
