The grant contract was signed by the EU delegation and the Consortium lead organisation, the German-Russian Exchange, at the end of December 2013. The start date for the project is 1st February. In February we will publish a timeline for activities in 2014, connected with the project proposal, and further information on what is on-going. In addition, the sub-granting Call for application (max. 6 projects with an amount of about 15-16,000 Euro) will be announced soon after the start of the project. As agreed at The Hague, the projects should be nominated by the working groups. It would therefore be good to have some preparatory communication on this issue.
