This fund is to provide seed money in the Danube Region. The call for project applications is open until 17 September, 2014.
The program is related to all Priority Areas of the Danube strategy.

Two main objectives of the program are: to kick-start project development in the Danube Region and facilitate the financing of transnational projects but also to help organizations to develop and implement project ideas.

The Fund aims to support either specific parts of a larger project (certain work packages, events within the project, surveys...are financed by the Fund) or implementation of a small project (where all activities of the project are financed by the Fund).
