El Reglamento Financiero aplicable al presupuesto general de la Unión Europea establece, entre los principios de ejecución del presupuesto, el principio de transparencia, que desarrolla a lo largo de dicho Reglamento y de sus normas de desarrollo mediante diversas disposiciones que garantizan una publicidad adecuada (ex ante o ex post) de la ejecución del presupuesto.
En lo que se refiere a las subvenciones, la publicidad se define en el artículo 128 del Reglamento Financiero, que prevé tanto una publicación ex ante del programa anual y de las convocatorias de propuestas como una publicación ex post de las subvenciones concedidas durante el ejercicio. A este respecto, conviene recordar que una subvención se considera «concedida» cuando existe un primer compromiso jurídico, a saber, la firma del primer convenio.

DG Communication has adopted a multi-annual work programme for grants in the area of communication covering the period 2016-2019.

The application deadline for partnership is 28 February 2018, midnight (CET)
Partners (i.e. organisations having successfully applied for partnership under this call for proposals in 2016 and 2017) have been selected for the whole duration of the multi-annual work programme for grants. Therefore they should not apply again for partnership. However, they may apply for a grant under the forthcoming specific call for proposals in the media category (COMM/SUBV/2018/M ) which is expected to be published in the coming weeks.
Organisations having submitted a partnership application, which was rejected under this call for proposals in 2016 and/or in 2017, are allowed to submit a new partnership application in 2018.
The application deadline is 31 March 2018, midnight (CET).
Only the successful partnership applicants (organisations selected as partners in 2016 or in 2017) or organisations having submitted a partnership application in 2018 may apply for funding using their partnership ID number.
Under the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Union, the award of grants is governed by the principle of transparency, which means inter alia that there must be ex post publication.
Articles 21 and 191 of the Rules of Application for grants stipulate that ‘All grants awarded in the course of a financial year, except scholarships paid to natural persons, shall be published’ on ‘the internet site of the Community institution concerned during the first half of the year following the closure of the budget year in respect of which they were awarded.’
Parliament is also obliged - in order to comply with personal data protection legislation (Article 35 of the Financial Regulation and Article 21 of the Rules of Application) - to limit the information which is published on grants. Information on grants awarded over the last two years will be published on the website. Older figures will be accessible upon request from the relevant directorates-general, with due regard for Regulation 45/2001/EC (see legal opinion on this website).
