Do you want to work with New Zealand students? Know a little about Europe? Are you ready to build people-to-people links between Europe and New Zealand? The EU has just opened a call for projects that do just that and more!

The purpose of the grant is to foster:

  • Civil society and people-to-people dialogues and exchanges between the EU and New Zealand;
  • Youth and Student political, cultural, academic, and social engagement;
  • Inter-cultural exchanges with the EU.

Activities must take place in New Zealand. They may include:

  • Development and consolidation of interactive EU teaching and learning modules for extracurricular activities and/or summer schools for students at high school and/or university level;
  • Organisation of Model EU simulation events and conferences with university and/or high school students;
  • Study trips, workshops, or conferences to foment exchanges between European and New Zealand youth.

New Zealand-based lead applicants are required to have at least one co-applicant from Europe (and vice versa i.e. European lead applicants must have at least one New Zealand co-applicant), which is an opportunity to incorporate European experiences or know-how or whatever criteria you may be in deficit.

The size of the grant is €300 000 and its timeframe is 24-36 months. Applications close on 25 August and will take some time to prepare – if you are interested, please begin working on the application as soon as possible.

Read the call for proposals, instructions and application forms.

The Delegation is available to be a sounding board should you want it.
