AER is glad to announce the launch of the Town Twinning Action Between Turkey and the EU Grant Scheme (TTGS). The aim of the programme is to create sustainable structures for exchange between local administrations in Turkey and local authorities in EU Member states to assist in the EU accession process.
Relationships can be developed between Turkish special provincial administrations, union of municipalities, governorates or district governorates, and local authorities in EU Member States. All project proposals must fall between 60,000 and 130,000 Euros.
All projects should be directed towards reinforcing the role of local authorities in European Integration and EU-Turkey Relations in accordance with the EU acquis chapters or the UN Sustainable development goals. With these goals in mind, projects can include but are not limited to: peer reviews and transfer knowledge among local authorities, organisation of seminars, workshops, roundtables, conferences, and study visits, awareness campaigns at the local, regional, or national levels, and capacity building activities related to the implementation of EU acquis at local levels.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is March 9th, 2018 at 17:00 local time. For any further information on the application process or the project please consult the attached documents on the TTGS home page.
