New calls for proposals and tender  

The European Commission plans to launch a number of new calls for
proposals and calls for tender during the course of 2006 – under the
Community Action Programme to combat discrimination. Calls for proposals
will be issued for: 

An EU-level organisation representing and defending Roma, to provide
support towards its operating costs. This call will be published during
the first quarter of 2006 and represents a re-issue of the call
originally issued in 2005. 

Awareness-raising activities developed by national authorities. This
call will only be addressed to the relevant national authorities (EU
Member States, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey) and will be issued in the
first quarter of the year.

Calls for tender will be issued for:

A study on multiple discrimination
A study on socially disadvantaged ethnic minorities
A study on developing indicators to measure the extent and impact of
discrimination
Non-discrimination training for NGOs and social partners in EU Member
States, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey and EEA countries.

More information – as well as the calls themselves, when published – is
available on: 
www.europa.eu.int/comm/employment_social/fundamental_rights/callspt/calls_en.htm
