Town twinning - 17.02.2009
Questions on the new guide on how to get EU funding
On 20 January 2009, the European Commission's DG Education and Culture organised an information day on the Europe for citizens programme guide. It includes a part on town twinning and on the possibility of EU support. John Atkins, of the European Commission's executive Agency for Education and Culture, answers our questions on the new programme guide.
What are the main changes on the programme guide compared with the previous one? What are the main errors local authorities should avoid when applying for EU support? What would you say would constitute a very good project then? These are some of the questions that John Atkins tackles in this interview.
The interview is available in English and French on the Twinning in Europe's website.
