Webinar Video: How to Create a Concept Note for the European Commission

The Webinar Video on “How to Create a Concept Note for the European Commission” is now available online.

The European Commission (EC) programmes are a significant potential source of funding for NGOs, but understanding what it is exactly that the Commission wants is often daunting.

Drafting a comprehensive concept note under highly competitive conditions often discourages organisations from even applying. Those that do apply frequently end up wasting a lot of time and resources drafting unsuccessful proposals by staff not duly equipped to translate the needs of the organisation into project proposals attractive to the EC.

This video will help viewers to develop the concept note drafting technique and maximize their organization’s chances of obtaining funding.
