Free training course on financing local development projects

(04 October 2016) – The Covenant of Mayors and Eurocities are organising, in Brussels on 28-29 November, a training course on financing sustainable local development projects.

The two-day training is open to representatives of cities signatory to the Covenant of Mayors initiative and currently working on a development project. The deadline to register your interest in attending this free training is 17 October, by sending the filled application form.

All selected participants will be required to present a project their city is currently working on. This highly interactive training will focus on the specific challenges local authorities face while developing their projects and seek external financing.

This training is particularly recommended for cities currently applying for EU funding programmes which encourage the mobilisation of additional financing sources as part of their project (Horizon 2020 smart cities call, Horizon 2020 nature-based solution, LIFE programme, etc.), but other interested cities are also welcome to apply.
