The funds made available under this call amount to EUR 308.500, while each individual project may receive financial support of maximum EUR 6.170, with minimum co-financing of 10% by the CSO. 20 CSOs per country (a total of 100) will be selected until 20th June, and will take part in a two-month training for social entrepreneurship. Afterwards, an evaluation of the business plan will be carried out, based on which 50 most successful CSOs will receive the needed financial and technical support.
