Call for pilot projects FAQ

To support applications to the RESISTIRE call for pilot projects, a set of frequently asked questions will be regularly updated with applicants’ requests.
You’re welcome to send your questions to: aglietti[at]knowledge-innovation-org and marina.cacace[at]


Deadline for applications

Please note: in responding to recent requests for leniency, we are announcing a 1 week extension to the submission deadline for Pilot Projects on Green Spaces as an Ecosystem of Care. The new submission deadline is 23 January 2022. We look forward to receiving your applications, and the shortlisted candidates will be invited to an interview the period of 1-4 Feb.


The Guidelines say “We are expecting proposals with a budget of around 20,000 € and intend to fund up to two proposals”. If we submit a project with a higher budget, will the proposal be rejected?

It is envisaged that two proposals will be funded, but each proposal is not explicitly required to have a maximum budget of 20,000 euros. Proposal with a higher budget will therefore not be rejected, but evaluated. A negotiation might take place to find a solution and allow to fund two projects with the available funds.

Role of the applicant

We regularly work with disadvantaged groups and are active in the suburbs, doing activities in schools, etc. In the Guidelines it is written that the applicant should only coordinate and not participate in the activities. Do we have to adhere strictly to this or can we also implement some of the activities together with the other organisations we will be coordinating?

Organisations can carry out some activities in the project, in line with their curriculum and experience. However, the co-creation and participatory approach underlying the project requires that the applicant’s role is above all to coordinate a group of partners and participants.

Green spaces

Does the green space have to be owned by the municipality or could it also be a green area owned by a private person, but which has long been available for community activities and therefore accessible to all?

It is required that the green area in which the project is to be implemented is accessible to the public. For privately owned green areas, the applicant is required to submit with the proposal a letter of support from the owner of the green area.
