Speed dating: EU Funds for Youth and Youth Cooperation in the Region


A speed date with representatives of European Union funds offering support to cooperation of youth in the region will be organised in the EU Info Centre in Belgrade on 7th December at 12.00 p.m.

The quick introduction of representatives of civil society organisations to EU funds for projects whose focus is youth and which encourage cooperation of youth in the region is a part of the campaign “Europe for You”, and it is jointly organised by the EU Info Centre, Delegation of the European Union in Serbia, Office for Cooperation with the Civil Society and the Foundation Ana and Vlade Divac.

Through the concept of speed dating, i.e. quick introductions, representatives of organisations will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn about funding possibilities for their projects and activities.
