All you need to know about financial support to third parties in EU Grants

eLearning course to strengthen knowledge and capacity in dealing with PRAG provisions on financial support to third parties.

Course Description

Financial support to third party is a valuable activity as it allows small grassroot organisations to get access to EU funds. The access is granted through intermediary organisations (mainly CSOs) which are requested to re-grant part of funds received by the EU.


This activity, which is everyday more demanded by the EU, requires a high management and administrative effort from the Grant beneficiaries.


In this course, you will discover the story of Bob, a Project Manager who wants to apply for an EU call for proposals where financial support is mandatory. With this aim, he tries to learn more about this activity and its main requirements.

By following Bob in this learning process, you will gain all the information you need to design, select, award, manage, monitor and report on financial support to third parties.


You will also be able to download the formats and the templates (developed by PuntoSud) that you will need in each phase of the process (e.g. the Guidelines for applicants of a call for proposals, the formats to be used by the third parties at proposal and reporting stages, the contracts to be signed with the third parties).


Finally, you will learn how to ensure compliance with the applicable EU rules.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:


  • Ascertain when it is possible to include financial support for third parties
