Financial details

As an indication, the Regulation establishing the Programme provided that the overall breakdown between the different actions for the whole Programme period 2014 - 2020 should be as follows:  

  • Strand 1 -European remembrance: approximately 20%
  • Strand 2 - Democratic engagement and civic participation: approximately 60%
  • Horizontal Action - Valorisation: approximately 10% 

The grant is calculated on the basis of Lump sum financing system fixed per "tranches". 

For Town Twinning, the lump sum is based only on the number of participants invited, i.e. international participants sent by partners from countries eligible for the programme, other than the country hosting the twinning. For the other strands/measures, the lump sum is based on three parameters which constitute the essential elements of all the citizenship actions: the number of participants, the number of countries involved and the number of events developed, with no direct impact on the format of activities. Initially, the lump sum is determined by taking into account the number of participants and the number of countries, then, in the case of several events/activities, the lump sums corresponding to each event/activity are accumulated.
