    Are stakeholders from Cohesion states obliged to submit their projects under the Cohesion Call?

    CliffVC edited question

      Commission Implementing Decision (2014/99/EU) of 18 February 2014 set out the list of regions eligible for funding from the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund and of Member States eligible for funding from the Cohesion Fund for the period 2014-2020. These are Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia. Cohesion states are eligible for cohesion funds but not obliged to submit applications on Cohesion Fund only. However, it is important to underline that when submitting under the Cohesion Call, the co-funding rate is up to 85% of the eligible costs, regardless the nature of the investment as ground based infrastructure or as on board equipment, whist in the General Call the co-funding rates are respectively up to 50% for ground based infrastructure and up to 20% for on board equipment. Therefore, there is an obvious interest in submitting under the Cohesion Call.
