  • Monitoring and evaluation

How to apply?

One representative of the city can submit a proposal (city department, public or semi-public utilities companies, public agencies, coordinating authorities, and other public bodies directly linked to the city).

Please fill in the application form (downloadable documents) for becoming a Host City or a Visitor City and submit it on the EU Survey Application Platform. More details and information on the general eligibility, reimbursement and methodology can be found in the terms of reference (Site Visits).
