EU funding opportunities in Kosovo | EU projects in Kosovo | WeBalkans

Kosovo*

Population 1.8 million

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.
* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244/1999 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.

WB6 MEDIA: Support to Media Freedom and Pluralism in the Western Balkans

GIZ, in partnership with Internews and DW Akademie, proudly announces the call for applications for the "EmpowerMedia Program," aimed at bolstering media freedom and pluralism in the Western Balkans. Funded by the European Union and the German Government, this initiative invites innovative media organizations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia to apply for grants to develop new media business ideas. Targeting forward-thinking media enterprises ready to explore pioneering business models and embrace digital integration, the program seeks to enhance the economic viability and independence of the media sector. Through supporting creative collaborations and digital innovations, "EmpowerMedia" aims to foster sustainable growth and a more diverse media landscape in the Western Balkans, ensuring the media's critical role in society is both preserved and strengthened.
