Following the closure of the Call for Proposals on 30 March, the Permanent Secretariat has been busy with the eligibility check of the 184 submitted applications. Notifications regarding their eligibility status will be sent to all applicants by the end of the May. Please note that no list of eligible/ineligible projects will be published.
Eligible applications will move onto the next step of the selection process
: the strategic assessment. This part of the assessment is carried out by a Panel of External Experts over May and June. Notifications to all the projects having moved to the strategic assessment will be sent in July with a detailed feedback from the assessors.
Following the strategic assessment, shortlisted applications will move to the operational assessment, carried out by the Permanent Secretariat over summer. The final decision on project applications will be taken and communicated to urban authorities in October 2017. Awarded projects will be publicly announced in October during the European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels.
