On 30 August 2016, a competent jury made the final selection of the projects, which had been submitted by participants of the Forum for Young Professionals "Europe Lab" 2016.

The funding will be granted to the International Network on Legal Assistance to Refugees, or INLAR (pro bono legal help to migrants and refugees); the International Movie Evenings "I Do Care" (overcoming of stereotypes in German, Russian, and Ukrainian societies by means of documentary screenings in Dnipropetrivsk, Leipzig, St. Petersburg, and Vologda); the "Human Faces of Conflicts" Project (online video and blog platform with stories by people from conflict areas in the Balkans, the Caucasus, and the Eastern Europe); and the #medialogueProject (media analysis of the events of 1990-1991 with teenagers as well as historians and journalists from Croatia, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Slovenia, and Ukraine).

Each team will get up to 2,500 euros for the implementation of the project. The results will be presented at the 7th General Assembly of the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum on 1-3 February 2017 in Helsinki, Finland.
