Where can I find application forms and guidelines?

Refer to question 1.

Regarding the three actions, how will the distribution of the overall budget? Will specific actions have more than others?

Refer to each EuroMed Youth Unit Guidelines where this has been specified.

As the "host" organisation, could we send the volunteers to do a large part of their voluntary service and be accommodated in some of our local partner organisations?

NO, as hosting you can only host volunteers (the programme does not foresee for ENPI entities to “send” volunteers but only “receiving/hosting” them):

  • As “host organisation” you must be an entity from the ENPI South region therefore your task will be “hosting” volunteers;
  • As “host organisation”, you have the responsibility to mentor the volunteer and to ensure a good coordination with your local partner organisations.
Is it possible to host an activity granted under Euromed Youth IV in a different country from which has applied?

No, the applying county is the only hosting country.

In a bilateral or multilateral action in Action 1 and 3, how many participants have to participate from each of the sides?

There is no limitation on the number of participants; it is up to you the Applicants to determine such details, based on the project design and budget.

If an international organisation located in Europe is one of the partners and the participants it sends to a MEDA (now ENPI South) country are from different countries – is that a bilateral or a multilateral action?

In youth exchanges (Action 1), this structure is not allowed, since the participants should be from organisation’s respective country. While in Actions 2 and 3, where this structure is allowed, is still defined as bilateral.
The definition of projects as bilateral and multilateral is based on the number and identity of the partner organisations, not the individuals taking part in the project. A multilateral action is when two entities (or three) from ENPI South Country/Territory and two entities (or three) from EU Member States are in partnership for the implementation of an action.
