Call for Proposals

The second Call for Proposals of the UIA initiative is now open. The Call will be open from the 16th of December until the 14th of April 2017 (14h00 CET). The UIA initiative invites applicants to develop and submit projects under three topics: circular economy, urban mobility and integration of migrants and refugees. An overall budget of 50 million euro of ERDF is allocated to this Call.
The Permanent Secretariat will organise a series of applicants seminars and webinars over the course of the Call for Proposals. Please regularly check the events section for more information.
You have a question? Please contact the UIA Permanent Secretariat.
Read the UIA Guidance

A must-read for all applicants! The UIA guidance is the main reference document of the Call and explains all the rules and requirements of an UIA project. It should therefore be read together with the Terms of Reference of the Call (see below).

A revised version of the guidance has been developed for Call 2, so please make sure to use this version while developing any project application. The UIA guidance is only available in English.

Download the Application Pack

Besides the UIA guidance, the Application pack gathers all documents an applicant must consult while developing a project proposal.

- The Terms of Reference for Call 2 (including detailed descriptions of the three Call topics) are available in all EU languages. Select your language through the scroll-down menu below. Please note that the English version is considered as the reference version for the Call.

- The courtesy working document of the Application Form is aimed at facilitating the development of your proposal, but cannot be used to formally submit your project (see section Apply below). It is only available in English and contains detailed guidance for each field of the Application Form. This detailed guidance can also be found in all EU languages in the online Application Form. Please note that English will be used as the reference language.

- The Technical Guidance EEP will guide you through the UIA online platform where your Application Form has to be filled-in and formally submitted.

- The Eurostat correspondence table is the main reference for the Eligibility check. Applicants are therefore strongly advised to check the spreadsheet and carry out an eligibility self-assessment before filling in the Application Form. In case of gaps, inconsistencies or doubts concerning the interpretation of the data included in this Eurostat spreadsheet, applicants are strongly advised to contact the UIA Permanent Secretariat.

It is strongly recommended that applicants fill in the Application Form in clear English, although it may also be submitted in any of the official EU languages.


The submission of the Application Form and relevant annexes is 100% paperless through the use of UIA’s Electronic Exchange Platform (EEP). Applicants are strongly invited to register and create their Application Form early in the application process. Going through the different sections of the Application Form and reading the guidance for the different fields (available in all EU languages) will help applicants to better structure and design their project.
