Swiss Contribution ECORYS Polska EUROREGION

A message from the Block Grant Director

Ladies and Gentlemen,

due to me leaving Ecorys, as of today I cease to act as the Block Grant Director.

In the last 6 years of managing the Technical Assistance Team I had the pleasure and great satisfaction to watch how funds from the EEA, the Norwegian and Swiss governments change our reality by supporting small, large, experienced and inexperienced NGOs in implementing hundreds of projects and thousands of necessary initiatives all around Poland.

I would like to thank all Beneficiaries, organisations and persons with whom I had the pleasure to cooperate, exchange views, and form the rules fo th the Funds so that they are friendlier to the applicants, and provide objective selection of the best projects.

I hope that in years to come, NGOs will be able to count not only on support of Swiss and Norwegian funds that will be available soon, but also on an increased engagement of our national resources dedicated to the sector - necessary in changing reality we live in and forming the civic society.
