In the framework of this project calls for papers are regularly organized since 2010 to fund 6 mini-grants for the best essays and analytical papers on European experiences of the problem solving and NGOs activities. They are published on the St. Petersburg based social Internet portal Cogita.ru, in Russian language. In 2011, two rounds of competition and publication were organized: the Third round “Charity in Europe and Russia” in January 2011 and the fourth round, on the topic “Civic Initiatives in the Cities of Europe and Russia”, which was announced in fall 2011. From 34 applications 4 were selected for the publication and awarding. As a result, in 2011 about 12 essays were published on Cogita.ru (for more details please see Chapter 6.19). Coordinators/Selecting Committee: Elena Belokurova, Anna Zhelnina (CGES), Tatjana Kosinova (Cogita.ru/ Memorial).
