There will be changes over the past programs. We have made it easier for you to apply. This is what has changed:
- Ceiling: Clubs can apply for up to 30 000 € per project;
- Risk management plan: no longer compulsory for your application.
M-project applications are open from June 1st till August 31st at 12:00 CET. We strongly encourage Clubs to apply early. This will significantly raise chances for an effective application as lead-time will allow us to work with you on your project! APPLY HERE !
We are planning on launching an S-projects call for applications in Q4 of 2013.
In May 2011 the United Nations launched the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. The project's goal is to save five million lives and reduce road-related injuries by 50 million worldwide over the next 10 years. To support this landmark project, the FIA created the Action for Road Safety programme to support the UN programme through its global network of motoring and touring clubs and its involvement with motor sports. The FIA Foundation welcomed this initiative and agreed to fund the FIA Strategic Road Safety Programme with an endowment of 1 million EUR per annum. Funding began in 2012 and is guaranteed through 2014, with an option for extension.
