Any organisation interested in becoming a Lead Partner under Area 2.2 may express their interest by completing and returning a Concept Note. The Concept Note does not form part of the formal application process. Instead, it has been put in place to help guide potential applicants, to strengthen their application (should they decide to make one) and to help with a smoother project implementation process in the event of funding being awarded.
Submission for 2.2 Concept Notes closed on Friday 12th May 2023.
