Call for proposals for PROPEA/Czech Business Support (CBS) Projects 2023

The Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Republic of Armenia is pleased to launch the call for proposals for the PROPEA/Czech Business Support (CBS) projects 2023.

 

PROPEA/Czech Business Support (CBS) projects are one of the instruments of the economic diplomacy promotion program of the Czech Republic. Projects are identified by the respective Embassies of the Czech Republic (through applications submitted by potential implementers) and approved by the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs (CZ MFA).

In Armenia, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Yerevan manages the program, while local organizations (e.g. companies) implement the projects. The foreseen budget per project is max. 500 000 CZK (roughly 20 000 EUR).
