The European Open Rivers Programme envisions a future of free-flowing rivers with healthy, diverse and connected ecosystems across Europe, which are enjoyed, valued, and protected by the communities that depend on them. To realize this vision, the programme offers grants to support projects that lead to the removal of dams and the restoration of river flow, function and biodiversity.
The European Open Rivers Programme invites Expressions of Interest (EoI) for project submissions for dam removal, preparatory and demolition projects, under grant categories A1, A2, A3 and B. The programme also invites Proposals for project submissions that fall under grant categories A4 and C
The next call for Expressions of Interest opens on the 21st of October 2022 and applications must be submitted online via the programme’s application portal by 17:00 CET on 9th December 2022.
Please visit the Application Resources webpage for more information about the application eligibility criteria, grant types, application process and guidelines and, how applications will be assessed.
