The International Visegrad Fund is an international organisation based in Bratislava founded in 2000 by the governments of the Visegrad Group (V4) countries; the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Republic of Poland, and the Slovak Republic. The purpose of the Fund is to facilitate and promote the development of closer cooperation among citizens and institutions in the region as well as between the V4 region and other countries, especially in the Western Balkan and Eastern Partnership regions. Visegrad+ Grants support projects which contribute to the democratization and transformation processes in selected countries and regions, especially non-EU member states in the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership countries. Any original proposal can get support if it deals with one of seven priority areas:
- (1) culture and common identity;
- (2) education and capacity building;
- (3) innovation, R&D, entrepreneurship;
- (4) democratic values and the media;
- (5) public policy and institutional partnerships;
- (6) regional development, environment and tourism;
- and (7) social development.
Any legal entity (organisation) worldwide is eligible to apply with a project proposal involving participation of project partners from at least 3 V4 countries and at least one entity from Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia) or Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine). The active involvement of partners from 3 V4 countries is therefore a prerequisite for applying.
Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine are eligible.
Grant amounts vary depending on the size and scope of the project. The average grant support for supported projects is around €20,000. Maximum contractual period for project implementation is 18 months. Grants cover up to 100% of project budget with maximum 15% of the requested sum for overheads.
