EU Civil Protection Funding Opportunities Information Day

On 7 March 2014 the Cabinet Office and UKCDS jointly held an Information Day on EU Civil Protection Funding Opportunities . The aim was to provide the UK civil protection community with an understanding of the EU funding opportunities available through the Civil Protection Mechanism. In 2014 almost €12m has been allocated from the EU civil protection budget for successful project and exercise proposals.

The Civil Protection Mechanism is a legal framework for Member States to assist each other and third countries in the event of a major natural or man-made disaster. It also includes financial support for exercises and research projects, training courses and exchange of expertise.

Here you can find the agenda for the event as well as all of the presentations featured on the day.

There is also a document with expected 2014 EU Civil Protection funding opportunities.
