Prague Civil Society calls application for InterActions Professional Exchange Program 2020.
This is one to two-month placements for civic activists, researchers, journalists, social entrepreneurs and think tank experts with a host organization of their choice, and an opportunity for organizations to invite a colleague to be placed with them for a professional exchange.
InterActions enables professional exchange and cooperation between civic initiatives, independent media, research institutes and social business in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. By participating in InterActions, activists, journalists, social entrepreneurs, public policy experts and researchers can choose for themselves a suitable host organization where they want to undertake the placement.
Individual or organizations working in one or more of these fields are eligible for the InterActions Professional Exchange 2020
Applicants should have a well-developed idea of what they want to achieve with their InterActions professional exchange. It can be research, skills-development, or any other idea that you want to collaborate on with a host organization or an invited colleague. Applicants are free to propose any topic.
Applicants must submit a budget proposal of up to €4,000. Up to €3000 of this amount is to cover the travel and living expenses of the person visiting the organization. It can be used to cover flight tickets, accommodation, food, local transportation, telecommunications, and other related costs. A fixed sum of €1,000 from the total budget will go to the host organization as a host fee. Organizations applying to the program under Track 2 can choose to allocate a part of their host fee as an honorarium for the invited guest and use the remaining amount to cover other expenses.
