Following AER’s focus on Turkish member regions and the work addressed to them in terms of EU funding and relations, we would like to focus again on an initiative aimed at strengthening sustainable structures between local administrations/authorities in Turkey and EU Member States: the Town Twinning Action Between Turkey and the EU Grant Scheme.
Within this initiative, which has been already shared with member regions, an information meeting for representatives of local authorities in the EU Member States, Unions and networks representing the local administrations in EU as well as all related parties will take place in Brussels on 8th February 2018.
If you are interested in joining this meeting, please register here by 1st February.
We would like to stress the importance of this meeting having in mind the deadline for submission of proposals on 23rd of March 2018 at 17:00 hrs (local time). With a total budget of 2.6M euros, the grant scheme will provide support for projects aiming at developing town twinning relationships between local administrations/authorities in Turkey and EU Member State and strengthening their role in the EU accession process.
