Note to grant seekers

KIOS does not hold an open invitation for new applicants anymore. KIOS opens a specific call for proposals twice a year for organisations not previously funded by KIOS. At the moment KIOS does not accept new proposals. The next date for new proposals will be updated on our webpage.

Organisations that have already recently received KIOS funding are welcome to submit their applications throughout the year.

The self-financing share will change. From August 1st 2014 the grantee must provide a self-financing share of a minimum 10 % of the total costs of the project funded by KIOS.
