Media and culture programme call for proposals: deadline extended to 10 June

The European Commission has issued a corrigendum extending the deadline of the call for proposals for the regional programme "Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean", reference EuropeAid/134169/C/ACT/Multi, from 20 May to 10 June among other amendments, as well as a revised indicative timetable. The programme has a budget of €9 million and aims at promoting media and culture as vectors for development in the Southern Mediterranean region.
An information meeting is provisionally scheduled for 14 May 2013 in Brussels upon registration at the following email address by 6 May 2013:  
The corrigendum also amended the location of activities, indicating that some exceptional activities may also take place in countries of the EU, EEA or IPA zone. Another correction has been made to Lot 2 to read “… at least 75% of the grant allocated under Lot 2 must be redistributed as sub-grants for actions as described here above.”
The specific objectives of this Call are to enhance a more independent media sector and a more diverse, professional and sustainable cultural sector in the South Mediterranean Region. The Call for Proposals is divided into two lots:
·         Lot 1 (€3 million): Enhancement of a more independent media sector (online and offline).
·         Lot 2 (€6 million): Enhancement of a more diverse, professional and sustainable cultural sector.
This call for proposal is a part of the regional programme "Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean" approved by the EC end of 2012. This programme has been allocated a total budget of €17 million over a four-year period, of which €9 million is for the award of grants on a co-financing basis (under this call for proposals) and €8 million for one capacity-development mechanism on media and one capacity-development mechanism on culture (two service contracts awarded under calls for tenders to be published shortly).
