From 27 June to 5 July the Joint Technical Secretariat organised in all 10 core and adjoining regions of the Programme area Info Days for potential applicants of the 1st and 2nd Calls for Proposals launched earlier this year.

The main focus of the Info Days were the 1st and 2nd Calls for Proposals launched by the participating countries earlier this year, including the 6 funding priorities; eligibility of applicants, projects, partnerships and costs; application procedures; project and financial planning; as well as new specific Programme-level output and result indicators each project is obliged to specify and meet.

In Ukraine, the Info Days were organised with support of Regional State Administrations in Uzhhorod with highest interest among potential applicants, Ivano-Frankivsk and the adjoining region of Chernivtsi.
