Small-scale project application

Learn about the simplified procedures applying to small-scale projects.

Main content

Compared to regular projects, small-scale projects are considerably smaller in scope - partnership size, duration, and budget. Applying for a small-scale project is also simpler. For example, you apply in a single step instead of using the two-step procedure set up for regular projects. Also, small-scale projects use simplified cost options which eases the financial management.
