The online application system for creating and submitting an Interreg Europe project application is available, as of 5 April 2016.

It can be found at www.iolf.eu. Applicants need to create an account, or login with an existing account, before being able to create their application.

The entire application process is now online. This means that all compulsory annexes must be scanned and uploaded directly on this system. The good news is that it is no longer necessary to send anything to the Joint Secretariat by post. You can find the templates for the ‘Letter of support’ and ‘Partner declaration’ annexes in the application pack.

Returning users

Did you create a project application during the first call for proposals that you would like to continue working on for the second call? Due to some changes in the application form, you will have to create a new entry. It is not possible to ‘import’ or continue working on the previous version, but you can copy and paste any relevant information into the new application.

Applications can be submitted until 13 May at midday, at which point the ‘Submit’ button will be deactivated and no further applications accepted.

Support

The JS has several support tools in place.

For advice on the relevance of your project, first check if your idea fits the programme before publishing it on our website and requesting feedback from the secretariat. Feedback can be requested until 22 April 2016.

Join one or more of our lead applicant webinars on specific aspects of building a successful application. Registration is already open:

Ask your burning questions in our weekly virtual Q&A hour, where members of the team will answer on any aspect of the second call. It runs every Friday, from 10-11am, until 6 May.

Check if the contact point in your country is organising any information seminars, or get in touch with them for any country-specific questions you might have.

And if all else fails, you can always call the Joint Secretariat on +33 328 144 107 or send us an email (select ‘Any question on project funding’ in the contact form) and we’ll do our best to help you out.
