Support for information measures relating to the EU Cohesion policy

The Information Measures for the EU Cohesion Policy Programme supports the Cohesion Policy by funding measures that provide information about it. It thus enables a more informed debate about future priorities for the EU and on the way how the funding should be used and with what results.

CALLS FOR PROPOSALS

Information measures for the EU Cohesion policy for 2022. Call for proposals IMREG-2022-INFOME. Deadline: 10.01.2023 | W3 Funding & Tender Opportunities, 12.10.2022

LEGAL BASIS

Regulation 2021/1058 of 24 June 2021 on the European Regional Development Fund and on the Cohesion Fund | OJ L 231/60, 30.6.2021


General information

With the initiative “Support for information measures relating to the EU Cohesion policy”, the European Commission selects potential beneficiaries who will produce and disseminate information and content linked to EU Cohesion policy, while respecting complete editorial independence of those involved. The specific objectives of this call for proposals are to promote and foster a better understanding among the general public and stakeholders of the role of Cohesion policy in supporting all EU's regions; to increase awareness of projects funded by the EU, and to encourage dialogue and debate on Cohesion policy, its results, its role in delivering on the EU's political priorities and on its future.

The main aim is to provide support for the production and dissemination of information and content linked to EU Cohesion policy, including inter alia the Just Transition Fund, or relevant support under the Recovery Plan for Europe or from the Technical Support Instrument.

The information measures should include one or several activities such as:

  • production and distribution of print, multimedia or audiovisual material
  • web and social media outreach activities
  • media events
  • conferences, seminars, workshops.

Procedure

In order to be eligible, the applicants (beneficiaries and affiliated entities) must: be legal entities (public or private bodies), be established in one of the eligible countries, and not be authorities in charge of the implementation of Cohesion policy.

The proposals should provide coherent, objective and comprehensive information, in order to give an accurate overall picture of the EU Cohesion policy. The proposals should illustrate and assess the role of Cohesion policy in delivering the EU’s political priorities and in addressing current and future challenges for the EU, its Member States, its regions and the local level. The geographical scope of this call is focussed on EU Member States, including overseas countries and territories (OCTs).

For the general public: increased public awareness of the results of Cohesion policy and their impact on citizens' lives to Europeans who are unaware of the EU and of the EU action in their region. Information should focus on developing greater understanding of the contribution of Cohesion policy to boosting jobs and growth in Europe and reducing disparities among Member States and regions.

For stakeholders: enhanced stakeholders’ engagement (including national, regional and local authorities, beneficiaries, businesses, academia) enabling them to further communicate the impact of Cohesion policy on their regions and to feed into the discussion on the future of Cohesion policy and, more broadly, the future of Europe.
