EU Public Health Programme ‘Call For Proposals 2008' Published

The EU Public Health Programme has published its 'Call for proposals 2008' which allows organisations to participate under a variety of financing mechanisms.
The Programme makes a clear distinction between 'grants for an action' and 'operating grants.'
Specified at SANCO's website, the 2008 financing mechanisms include:

· call for project proposals

· operating grants

· call for conference proposals

· joint actions by the Community and Member States as well as other (third) countries participating in the Programme

· tendering of actions to achieve a Programme objective.

The deadline to apply for funding is 23 May 2008.
