The first call for proposals was opened on September 16, 2021 and closed on January 19, 2022.

The intention is also to maintain approximately the same timing for the next 2 calls for proposals in subsequent years, so publication in September, deadline in January.

For the calls from 2024 onward, it will be determined later how the remaining budget of the programme will be distributed, which priorities will be highlighted and the timing for the launch and closure for the submission of project proposals.
