Supporting members and their national counterparts to develop partnership approaches, diversify funding options, and access funding from the European Union.

The aim of the Funding and Partnerships group is to address barriers to partnership and inspire more project collaboration. This includes renewing our focus on the EU institutions and European governments’ funding opportunities and donor trends to navigate the EU institutional funding landscape. We also want to create more opportunities for interaction beyond physical meetings and engage with members’ national counterparts and offices globally.
