EU: European level political parties and their foundations

The Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 5.6.2009 C 125 has two important announcements for the fledgling Europarties and their political foundations (and indirectly for the forming of a European awareness and for the expression of the political will of the citizens of the EU).

They are the European Parliament’s:

Call for proposals IX-2010/02 — Grants to political foundations at European level

Call for proposals IX-2010/01 — Grants to political parties at European level


Given the millions on offer, I sincerely hope that the European level parties and their foundations finally start to offer some value for money in 2010.
