On 25 March 2021, the European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations will hold an online Information Day, focusing on funding opportunities under the EU Civil Protection Mechanism 2021 Annual work programme.


The Information Day aims to familiarise potential applicants with the objects of the Prevention and Preparedness, the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network and the Full-scale exercises programs.

The event provides guidance on the preparation of applications for Calls for proposals to be published in 2021. The activities are open to the Member States and Participating States as defined in the UCPM Decision  as well as to European Neighbourhood Policy and Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance countries.

The Commission organises an Information Day to inform potential applicants on the technical and administrative requirements and criteria applicable. The aim is to ensure that the proposals comply with the required quality standards and increase their success rate.


The Information Day is intended for representatives of stakeholders in the field of civil protection (national administrations, regional and local authorities, private sector, non-governmental organisations, research institutes).

If you would be interested in attending this Information Day, please send an email no later than 22 March COB to: ECHO-B3-ATTRIBUTION@ec.europa.eu to confirm your participation.


The programme of the 2021 Information Day will be available soon.
