The purpose of our guide is to provide an overview that brings together information scattered across websites of different Commission Directorate Generals. If you use our guide to identify possible programmes of interest and then go to the website addresses indicated, you will find more detail about the programmes and calls for tender, although how much varies from one DG to the next. Examples of the types of projects funded are available in websites of some of the DGs. The European Commission is certainly Europe’s largest donor. It is estimated that 1 billion Euro (out of a total budget of about 100 billion Euro) is available for NGO projects, and even that is the tip of
the iceberg.
