  • Public safety
  • Public security services

Applications can be made from May 28 until June 8 (4 p.m.) to the Province of Limburg.


  • The results of the project should be to the benefit of citizens and organisations in the region.
  • The project must be cross-border in nature: Partnerships must include at least two legal entities from two different Member States in the region.
  • The maximum duration of the project is 12 months.
