Small-Scale Development Project Awards (2010-2014)
Between 2010 and 2014, a total of sixteen grants of up to £3,000 each were awarded to collaborative projects across the five nations. Examples of successful applications in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 can be viewed as exemplars. You can also read about the aims, actions and outcomes of completed initiatives.
Below are three short interviews with project leads, filmed at the 2013 conference in Edinburgh, explaining how they found cross-border partners, what they are/were trying to achieve, the actions involved and the key outcomes of the initiatives (at that point).
