How to design financial support to third parties activities

Ad hoc webinar session to explore what exactly FSTP is, its main aim and how to include this component in one's proposals. 

Course Description

Have you noticed that several open Calls for Proposals published on the DG INTPA dedicated website, include the ‘Financial Support to Third Parties’ (FSTP) activity as an essential component of the projects to be proposed.


Are you interested in one of these calls, but you are not familiar with this type of activity or you don’t know how to include the related costs in the budget?


In this webinar we will explore what exactly FSTP is, its main aim and how to include this component in your proposals.


We will go through the Guidelines for Applicants of a Call for Proposals to understand which are the requirements to comply with and we will discover which information should be provided both in the Concept Note and in the Full Application formats. We will also give you the instructions that are needed to present the related costs in the budget.


We will also discover the elements you should take into consideration in the management of this component, starting from the selection of the beneficiaries to the set-up of the control mechanisms that will ensure compliance with EU rules and objectives.


We will answer your questions and share with you the lessons learned over the course of our long experience in this field.
