AML showcases projects resulting from EEA Grants funding opportunities in its territory

The RenaturAdapt (Loures), Centro Cultural Costeiro (Sesimbra), Rede de Autarquias para a Igualdade (Amadora) and Kids Dive Portugal-Noruega (Sintra) projects were presented yesterday to around 60 municipal technicians during a videoconference information session on EEA Grants funding opportunities.

All four projects, implemented by AML municipalities as promoters or partners, were funded by the EEA Grants, and testify to the importance of this fund for the development of proposals with a high impact on the lives of communities, in areas such as culture, the environment and gender equality.

The session was attended by Carlos Humberto de Carvalho, metropolitan first secretary, Filipe Ferreira, metropolitan secretary, Susana Ramos, coordinator of EEA Grants Portugal, and municipal representatives of the four projects presented.

After the speech by Susana Ramos, who spoke about how the municipalities can participate as final beneficiaries and information facilitators, and the presentations of the four projects, Carlos Humberto de Carvalho stressed the "unlimited availability of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area to bring together wills and knowledge so that, collectively, we can build solutions that improve the territories and the quality of life of the people who inhabit them".

The EEA Grants are Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway's contribution to reducing social and economic disparities in Europe, and are an important reinforcement for cooperation between the donor states and the 15 beneficiary states in Central and Southern Europe.

For the 2014-2021 period, Portugal will benefit from a total allocation of 102.7 million euros.
