Have you been thinking about applying for projects funded by the European Union, but never knew exactly where to start and where to find all the necessary information? The Minister of European Integration and International Cooperation of the Republic of Srpska, Zlatan Klokić, explained a lot in our Morning Program.
- We have decided in the Ministry to create a platform to simplify applying for funding. Potential applicants with questions will receive an answer very quickly through this platform. It is of an informative nature, offers an overview of all calls issued by foreign donors, records the amounts of funding withdrawn, and allows asking questions which are answered very quickly, and the range of questions is wide - Klokić pointed out.
The platform offers several programs open for applying.
- These instruments aim to provide support in various areas and sectors in a country that is a potential candidate for EU membership. The participation of applicants is required, so they need to provide a contribution in order to receive the funding - Klokić added
Last year, about 180 projects were implemented in the Republic of Srpska, worth about EUR 250 million.
- Naturally, not everyone can apply here, but natural and legal persons can, it all depends on the conditions in the Public Invitation, and it is this app that makes it easy to see who can apply - Klokić emphasized.
