The CIVINET Activity Fund Call 2020 has now been launched! As part of this, CIVINETs that were inactive during the previous activity period now have the opportunity to apply for one-off ‘kick-start funding’ to aid their reactivation.

The CIVINETs are a group of national networks that promote the CIVITAS approach at a local level, overcoming language and contextual barriers for local authorities and organisations interested in promoting sustainable urban mobility.

Members exchange information in their own language, working together to engage with the European Union and national governments on transport policy issues, legislation, regulations, and funding.

Engaged network partners – either private, semi-public or public – that come up with a tangible plan to host the new CIVINET secretariats of either CIVINET Francophone, CIVINET Polska, or CIVINET UK & Ireland can apply for a one-off starting fund of up to 6,000,00.

Typically, a CIVINET secretariat is in charge of administering the respective CIVINET and organising its activities on a daily basis, such as:

  • Managing the membership registrations database of contacts, in line with applicable data protection legislation.
  • Being the contact point for the respective CIVINET.
  • Maintaining and broadening the CIVINET network.
  • Organising meetings and events for the respective CIVINET.
  • Being responsible for the financial management of the respective CIVINET.
  • Managing the respective CIVINET website.
  • Producing information material (brochures, newsletters).
  • Being the main contact person for the respective CIVITAS Coordination and Support Action.

More detailed information on the CIVINET Activity Fund Call 2020, including this opportunity, can be found here. The deadline to submit applications is Monday 28 September 2020, 17:00 CEST.
