You can submit applications for two types of activities:
Litigation track support: Support for litigation of a case through multiple instances, from first instance through to the final appeal. Example: challenge before the European Court of Human Rights against police use of facial recognition technology.
Pre-litigation research: Support for activities to prepare for litigation. This could include legal research, evidence gathering, forum selection or identifying claimants and project partners. Example: comparative study between three EU jurisdictions to determine which one offers the best options to address a specific issue under an EU Directive.
Funding Information

As litigators work with different operational models and each case has different dimensions and complexities, grant amounts requested vary. Rather than working with a fixed case support fee, DFF will evaluate each case on its own merits in light of both the general grantmaking criteria and the principle of cost-efficiency. Please note that DFF does not approve many grants of more than EUR 100,000. Applications exceeding that amount should show evidence of co-financing to improve the chances of a grant being awarded.
Eligibility Criteria

DFF accepts grant applications concerning all Council of Europe Member States.

the concrete objectives of the litigation;
a solid legal strategy: which arguments will be made, how they will be framed, and how this will contribute towards achieving the objectives of the litigation;
how the litigation objectives contribute to advancing digital rights in Europe: what is the expected impact;
the best forum to litigate in order to achieve the pursued objectives;
the possible instances of litigation that may be necessary to achieve the litigation objective(s), including appeals and referrals to regional courts;
how the litigation relates to other existing or planned activities on the litigation’s subject matter – both litigation and otherwise – domestically and in Europe;
why litigation is an appropriate tool to employ in this context;
the identified risks and weaknesses of the litigation and a strategy for mitigation;
a plan to embed the litigation in a broader strategy for change;
a plan for implementation in case of a positive outcome of the litigation and mitigation in case of a negative or mixed outcome;
a plan to monitor and evaluate progress towards achieving objectives.
