This call for proposals aims to provide operating grants for 2016 under the Framework Partnership Agreements concluded for the period 2015-2017 to provide for long term cooperation between the European Commission and EU-level networks active in the promotion of rights of persons with disabilities. The call will provide grants to fund operating costs and those activities of the network which have EU added value and contribute to the implementation of the objectives of the REC Programme.

The Framework Partnership Agreements were signed in 2015 following the call for proposals JUST/2014/SPOB/OG/NETW. They set out the framework conditions governing potential operating grants and encompass a triennial strategic action plan proposed by the EU-level networks and accepted by the European Commission._x000D_
