You may apply for a grant if you run a business or a related organisation (business associations, business support providers, consultants, etc.) that runs projects that further the interests of the EU, or if you contribute to the implementation of an EU programme or policy. Projects should have a transnational character, be well thought out and offer added value. Grants provided directly by the EUCommission:
serve as complementary financing; the EU does not finance projects up to 100%
are meant to help projects break-even financially; they cannot result in a profit for the grant beneficiary
cannot be awarded retroactively for projects already completed
are awarded on a one-grant-per-project basis.
