Fulfilling one of the main objectives of this initiative – that of facilitating and mediating access to European Funds – free personalized counselling and accompaniment sessions are provided for performers, through a system of “consultations” with a professional who is responsible for the area of Community Funds: Francisco Cipriano.

Performers who are interested in an appointment to clarify their doubts and difficulties may schedule an in-person consultation by filling out the designated Application Form.

How does it work?

After receiving and analyzing the request for a consultation, it will be forwarded to the technician responsible for approval, which will schedule an online meeting.
