The Secretariat, under the responsibility of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, ensures the administration of the Pilot Programme.

The Secretariat plays a crucial role in the seamless coordination and functioning of the Pilot Programme. Key responsibilities encompass managing donor relations, overseeing grant proposals and evaluations, facilitating communication, organizing calls for projects, handling administrative workflows for awarded grants, and ensuring the programme's financial integrity. Through efficient coordination of the evaluation committees, liaising with Donor Board, and upholding stringent financial oversight, the Secretariat ensures the program's objectives are met and its operations run smoothly.

For advice and information about preparing an application for support, the Secretariat is your main point of contact.
