European Commission Funding: Writing a Winning Concept Note

Many NGOs dream of receiving funding from the European Commission (EC) one day. But while getting funding from the EC would be a total game changer for most NGOs, the application process also has the reputation of being incredibly complicated and difficult. Understanding what it is exactly that the Commission wants is often daunting.

Drafting a comprehensive concept note under highly competitive conditions often discourages organizations from even applying. Those that do apply frequently end up wasting a lot of time and resources drafting unsuccessful proposals by staff not duly equipped to translate the needs of the organization into project proposals attractive to the EC.

But don´t let that deter you from trying! We have just the right thing for you!

We have developed this online course exactly to help NGOs to get their foot into the door and to learn how to draft successful concept notes for the European Commission!
