BIRN Kosovo Held Grant Information Sessions

Posted on

BIRN Kosovo held two information sessions on May 24 and 25, one in Prishtina and one in North Mitrovica, to provide clarifications and answer questions from prospective applicants to the ‘Support to Civil Society and Media Initiatives’ project funded by European Union in Kosovo.

The sessions focused specifically on “Contributing to the strengthening of independent, investigative and useful journalism for the public and freedom of expression in Kosovo”.

The most significant objectives of the project are strengthening Kosovo’s media sector to fulfill its role in a democratic environment, improving the internal governance of the Press Council of Kosovo and improving the understanding and enforcement of the law on freedom of information, prosecution, copyright and media-related legislation.

BIRN representatives also provided more information about potential applicants’ requirements in terms of the project’s timeline and budget lines, acceptable and unacceptable activities, covered and non-covered expenses within the project, and application procedures.

With the call for applications for the ‘Support to Civil Society and Media Initiatives’ project, BIRN Kosovo will award about 20 sub-grants divided into small grants and medium grants.

Small grants involve amounts from 2,000 to 5,000 euros for a six-month project implementation period, while medium grants involve amounts from 20,000 to 30,000 euros for a 12-month project implementation period.
