Call for Expressions of Interest – deadline for new submissions – 5th January 2022

November 19, 2021

The 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 programme is inviting Expressions of Interest (EoI) for new dam removal project ideas from 19th November 2021.

The EoI must be submitted online via our Grant Management System by 17:00 CET on 5th January 2022.

For this first grant cycle, the programme will invite project submissions for dam removal preparatory and demolition projects that fall under grant categories A and B.

For more information about the Open Rivers Programme, application eligibility criteria, grant types, application process and guidelines, and how applications will be assessed, please download and review our Information guide for applicants on our Application Resources page.

Good luck!

We look forward to receiving your new project ideas. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
