Deadline for call for proposals 'Union Civil Protection Mechanism Exercises' extended

In March 2017 the European Commission has published a call under the programme Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM). The deadline for this call, with identifer UCPM-2017-EX-AG, is extended until Thursday 22 of June 2017 at 17:00 Bruxelles time.

The purpose of the call is to enable and support exercise projects which provide opportunities in controlled environments to asses, learn from and improve the response capability of Participating States of the Mechanism and the European Commission. The budget of € 4.9 million, is divided in External Action Grants (€ 1,300,000) and Internal Action Grants (€ 3,600,000). 

 

The UCPM is intended to support and complement Member States' action at national, regional and local level in risk prevention, in preparedness and in responding to natural or man-made disasters. When disasters strike a country, within the European Union or outside, the Mechanism allows for the necessary operational resources to be mobilised to assist and provide a prompt response. In this context each year DG ECHO publishes two calls for proposals to fund activities aimed at closer cooperation in prevention, preparedness and awareness-raising in civil protection and marine pollution: Prevention and preparedness in civil protection and marine pollution (2017 budget € 8.6 million) and Union Civil Protection Mechanism Exercises (2017 budget € 4.9 million).
