  • Any non-governmental, legal entity from any country can apply for support if they fulfil the partnership criteria (see below). The Fund’s main targets are civil society organizations (CSOs), public educational, cultural, research and scientific institutions, municipalities, and local governments, but market actors, e.g., companies – especially innovation and startup-related ones – are also eligible, if their project is of nonprofit character.

  • Natural persons (individual citizens) or institutions of state administration directly subordinated to the state and its bodies, e.g., ministries, government and state agencies, embassies, etc. can neither apply nor

  • Be valid project partners.

  • Private entrepreneurs are not eligible to apply or be partners.

  • Subjects that possess full or partial independence from state administration and possess self-government (such as universities, academic, artistic, social, educational, cultural, research and/or science organizations, municipalities, and local governments, etc.) can apply for the Fund’s support.

  • If the applicant is a research or higher education institution with several organizational units (e.g. universities, academies of science, etc.), they are obliged to indicate the name of the
    smallest possible organizational unit (institute, department, etc.) entrusted with the project’s implementation. Without this information, the application will not be considered eligible. When choosing the appropriate unit, make sure that they are entitled, according to their internal rules, to apply for project funding independently.

  • Should an overlapping larger unit (e.g. a faculty of the university) have a running grant in the same grant scheme that the applicant wishes to apply for, it is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that the running project is administered by a separate subunit (e.g. the applicant is a department under a faculty which already has a running project – a clear separation of subunits will be necessary to make the new proposal eligible).
