The FVO Partnerships grant programme is open for applications. The programme supports partnerships between companies and civil society organisations that wish to identify and address Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) risks and misconduct within their value chain(s).


FVO Partnerships is a 4-year programme (2019–2022), during which organisations will be given the opportunity to submit project applications for grant funding. In 2019, funds totalling €5.7 million are available for FVO Pillar 1. For each project, a grant can be awarded to reimburse a maximum of 70% of the eligible project costs, up to a maximum of €475,000. Only Dutch companies (or foreign companies with a permanent establishment in the Netherlands) and Dutch Civil Society Organisations with a minimum annual turnover or budget of €500,000 can apply.


The deadline for applications is 5 September 2019. Before submitting an application, companies are required to go through an advisory procedure. You will find further information about the programme and application process at our FVO Partnerships page.
