Albania is a candidate country for EU membership. The EU is Albania’s primary political and economic partner, and its largest donor and investor. To help the country progress on its EU path, the EU provides financial assistance in a wide range of areas – from agriculture to transport, green energy to support for entrepreneurs, and much more.
This goes hand-in-hand with support for improvements that are necessary to meet EU standards, in areas like the judiciary and public administration. In this way, EU is contributing to improve the quality of life and opportunities for Albania’s 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
