There is no set minimum size for project budgets. Applicants are advised to ensure that the scale (and therefore the budget) of the proposed actions is sufficiently large to ensure that the project achieves meaningful results with significant EU added value. Small projects (i.e. below 500,000 € total costs) have seldom succeeded due to the limited output and consequently low added value.
