When there will be the 2nd Call for Proposals?

19 projects were approved under conditions for financing from the Latvia – Lithuania Programme in the 1st Call which was closed on 30 June 2008. Everyone who did not manage to apply in the 1st Call or wants to improve project application is probably waiting impatiently when the 2nd Call will be announced.

Decision on the dates of the 2nd Call for Proposals shall be made by the Joint Monitoring and Steering Committee by the end of this year. It is planned that 2nd Call will be launched in the beginning of 2009.

Joint Technical Secretariat prepared answers to the most common questions asked about the 2nd Call.
