ELI Awarded EU Operating Grant for 2021


We are proud to announce that ELI was awarded an EU Operating Grant for 2021 under a four-year Framework Partnership Agreement from 2018–2021.

The Operating Grant will enable ELI to intensify its efforts to contribute to the improvement of European law and the formation of a more vigorous legal community, mainly through various ELI projects and key events, such as the ELI Annual Conference and Membership Meeting.

ELI’s ambitious plan for the next year, which includes various activities focusing on topical legal issues such as the rule of law and digitalisation, among many others, will increase the capacity of practitioners and authorities to address issues relating to judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters, increase the awareness of policy makers in various fields and improve knowledge on legislation and administrative practices, among others.

ELI has been the beneficiary of the EU Operating Grants since 2015.

Other sources of funding include funds from a cooperation agreement with the University of Vienna, membership fees and a project grant from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation. You can find out more about it here.
