Statement 1: The more a call is competitive – and selective, the less facilitators will be asked to play an intermediation role, as the investment will have less chances to lead to a comeback. 2. Statement 2: Competitive grants strengthen the strongest actors nor decrease the disparities between your strong and the vulnerable. For Day 4 was about the proposal formulation The final session.
