Finally, the LIFE EUROKITE project has started. Thanks to all involved partners!
The "Central European Society for Raptor Protection (CESRP)" submitted the project "LIFE EUROKITE" as coordinating beneficiary before June 14th, 2018 at the 2018 Call for proposals for LIFE Action Grants. The implementation of this European project is planned in 26 countries of the EU or Europe with the support of numerous associated beneficiaries and co-financers. The new system of LIFE proposals with a 2-step approach (Concept Note - Full Proposal) was new to everyone involved. Nevertheless, the Concept Note was accepted, and we were invited by Angelo Salsi (EASME) to present a full proposal until January 30th, 2019. The full proposal was successfully submitted by the CESRP and in December 2019, the Grant Agreement was signed by EASME and MEGEG. Therefore, the project "LIFE EUROKITE" is now reality.
During the last few months, the CESRP, the Team of TB Raab and all other partners were busy by implementing and organising the start of the EUROKITE project. We were able to agree on different kinds of collaborations, signed new contracts with partners and completed the first workshops on tracking possibilities.
