In the framework of the 9th Call and as part of the European Union (EU) -Brazil Sector Dialogue Support Initiative, a qualification workshop for project proponents took place in Brasilia last May 3rd.
The meeting was intended to guide proponents in submitting project proposals to harmonize Brazilian and European priorities in order to facilitate dialogue between all participants.
Direct beneficiaries of the Support Initiative for Sectoral Dialogues, specifically the Brazilian Federal Public Administration and the corresponding General Directorates, Institutions or EU Agencies participated in the event.
The priority areas for the new projects to be selected are: air and sea transport; science and technology; Information society, including digital government and innovation for the public sector; public procurement; human rights and agriculture. For this purpose in the next 18 months, approximately 3 Million Reais will be available.
The deadline for submission of projects will be next May 31. The results of the proposals will be announced on June 12 at the Sectoral Dialogues website.
CESO has been the leader of the Service Provider Consortium since the 2nd Phase of the EU-Brazil Sectorial Dialogues Initiative. The project aims to contribute to the deepening of the strategic partnership and bilateral relations between the EU and Brazil, addressing matters of mutual interest to both parties.
Last February, the launch of the IV Phase of the Project for the period 2017-2019 was announced. For more information on this subject, see here.
