British Embassy Paris: call for Franco-British projects

Deadline has been passed
£15,000

Resume

Building on the success of the UK-France Mayors’ Summit, we are looking to support projects that fall into the following categories:

  • environment and tackling climate change
  • promoting innovation and digital and increase territory attractiveness
  • promoting culture, heritage and sports at local level

These were the three main themes which emerged from the Summit as being practical and impactful fields for collaboration. Within these themes, projects could be anything from business forums to exchange best practice, to youth sport competitions.

A total amount of £15,000 is available. These funds may be allocated to one single project or to several projects, depending on the nature of the bids received.

We are looking for concrete and innovative project bids from partnerships involving UK and French local authorities and/or local community groups. Bidders should have secured the agreement from a partner in the other country for the project, even if the details are not yet clear. We regret that the British Embassy will not be able to support bids that have not yet secured a partner.

Criterias

Who can apply ?

The British Embassy in Paris will review all applications from:

  • UK local authorities and/or community groups who have already secured the agreement from a French partner to implement the project if the bid is successful
  • French local authorities and/or community groups who have already secured the agreement from a UK partner to implement the project if the bid is successful

Whilst the Embassy can offer some light touch support, project management will be the responsibility of the bidder or any local organisation they choose to work with.

Criteria

Project(s) selected must satisfy the following criteria:

  • be practical with clear objectives and deliverables
  • demonstrate how it will strengthen co-operation locally between the UK and France, both in the immediate and longer-term
  • demonstrate the benefit to the local communities on both sides of the Channel
  • particular attention will be given to innovative projects which fit under the three emergent themes from the UK-France Mayors’ Summit:

    • environment and tackling climate change
    • promoting innovation and digital and increase territory attractiveness
    • promoting culture, heritage and sports at local level
