2.26 Is there a recommended number of partners to be involved in a project? Published 2011/06/20

There is no number of recommended partners since this depends on the objectives of the project, its activities and results to be achieved. According to the Guidelines for Applicants, the minimum number of countries to be represented in a partnership is 4 (including at least one EU Mediterranean Country and one Mediterranean Partner Country). The Concept Note format allows up to 15 subjects involved in the partnership (Applicant + 14 partners). In case the partnership includes more than 14 partners, please use the additional partners form available upon request to the Joint Managing Authority.
In order to guarantee a smooth management of the project, it is strongly recommended to limit the number of organisations involved in the partnership to a maximum of 15 (i.e. Applicant and 14 Partners).
