Training course “EU Funding Opportunities” for firefighters

The three-day training course “EU Funding Opportunities” has been held for over twenty employees of the Vojvodina Fire Brigade at the Fire Department Association of Vojvodina.
The representatives of the European Affairs Fund of AP Vojvodina, Nemanja Davidović and Dejana Dobrić informed the participants about the INTERREG IPA cross-border cooperation programmes under which they were eligible to submit applications, as well as about the EU programmes available to the Republic of Serbia and to the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina.
The aim of the training course was to equip the participants with skills, so that they could draft project proposals for EU funds on their own, to teach them to position the project proposals strategically within the defined priorities and measures, as well as financial opportunities. The participants developed four project ideas, which they could submit as applications under the INTERREG IPA CBC Hungary – Serbia and Romania – Serbia. At the end of the third day, they were awarded certificates of successfully training completion.
