Unless sector-specific eligibility rules provide otherwise, if the United Kingdom withdraws from the EU during the grant period without concluding an agreement with the EU ensuring in particular that British applicants continue to be eligible, applicants will cease to receive EU funding (while continuing, where possible to participate) or will be required to leave the project on the basis of Article 12.2 (e) of the General Conditions of the grant agreement’.
    • The lead applicant is encouraged to act with a media as co-applicant that is based outside Podgorica.
    • In case the lead applicant is a media production company, they are obliged to partner with electronic media (Montenegrin television specifically) to ensure broadcasting of their product.
  • Co-applicant(s)
    • Co-applicants participate in designing and implementing the action, and the costs they incur are eligible in the same way as those incurred by the lead applicant.
