CCP Synergy Networking


The ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) has announced the applications for its Cross Culture Programme (CCP) Synergy Networking Civil Societies to promote tandem cooperations between civil society organisations from Germany and one of the 45 CCP partner countries which would like to carry out a joint initiative and network sustainably.

The purpose of such a collaboration could be, for example, the planning and implementation of joint events, fact-finding missions, research or artistic undertakings as well as the preparation of different kinds of publications. Thus, this programme encourages an exchange between civil society actors across national borders.


       If possible, both organisations should work in a similar field – thematically or regionally – from one of the following areas:

       Policy and society

       Media and culture

       Human rights and peace

       Sustainable development

       In addition, from 2019 to 2023, the following key topics will also be focussed on:

       Digital Civil Society

       Non-formal Political Education

Funding Information

       CCP Synergy supports both cooperating organisations with a total of 4,500 euros.

       Funding is available for the following purposes:

       travel expenses

       accommodation

       meals in accordance with the valid daily rates

       health insurance

       expenditure allowance as needed

       other costs related to the collaboration such as visas, etc.

       Climate Justice
