Preparation of the Project Application
The project application represents a key document that will decide on whether you will be successful in your effort to get finances from the European funds or not. When preparing the application, you shall be guided by the applicant's manuals and other methodical instructions prepared by the corresponding operational program. At the same time, consultations with employees of the managing authority or the intermediate body, seminars, conferences, etc. are available. During the stage of preparation, don't be afraid to ask questions in order to include everything necessary into your project application.
The applications have to be filled out in the electronic form. Most operational programs use the internet application BENEFIT for this. Nevertheless, the OP Environment prepared for the applicants the electronic tool BENE-FILL and the OP Enterprise and Innovation prepared the application eAccount. All above-mentioned applications are available at the address https://www.eu-zadost.cz/stromFormularu.aspx
Enclosures that might be requested in addition to the project application:
Well-arranged material briefly describing the project objectives in connection with specific activities and outcomes of its activities.
The feasibility study serves to evaluate the workability and viability of the project. It describes the financial aspect of all activities and it evaluates the effectiveness of spent finances. It usually ranges from 20 to 50 pages. This document is binding and the objectives specified therein will have to be met, otherwise the subsidy may be withdrawn. The less costly or the so-called soft (non-investment) projects require only a simplified feasibility study. More expensive, usually investment projects require the standard feasibility study.
Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA)
The methodology for evaluation of the positives the project brings and of what the project takes both in terms of finances and in social terms. The abbreviation means Cost-Benefit Analysis.
