Developing cooperation with other civil society organizations strengthens the work of the organizations. CSOs can come together by getting associated in networks/platforms, and build up partnerships with other organizations for acting together with regard to some specific topics in accordance with their fields of activity.
In addition to the tools developed by STGM in order to meet these needs of civil society organizations, you can find other related resources, guides, databases and partner through the tools listed below.
STGM Database of Civil Networks in the World and Europe
The Database of Civil Networks in the World and Europe, prepared by STGM, functions as a search engine for CSOs that want to reach the general information, goals, membership, and contact details of networks organized on the international and European scale. You can list networks according to the keyword, subject, country, and city criteria in your field of study and access detailed information.
Sivil Düşün Programme Networks Database
It is possible to reach the networks in Europe by scanning the networks database created by the European Union Sivil Düşün program on the basis of the thematic area.
PADOR is an abbreviation for "Potential Applicant Data Online Registration" for European Union foreign aid. In many grant calls of the European Union, it is necessary to be registered in PADOR. If you are an organization registered in PADOR, you can log in to the online system and use the "Search Organization" tab in the user menu to search on the basis of country and organization name/keyword, and access the contact information of the organizations.
If you do not have a PADOR registration yet, you can access promotional and application videos on our YouTube channel. You can also visit the ECAS, PADOR & PROSPECT page in STGM Supports for more detailed information.
STGM CSOs Database
Using the CSOs database prepared by STGM, you can search with organization, the field of activity, place of activity, and region options, and reach the contact information and contact persons of the relevant organizations in Turkey.
CSOs database can stay up to date as long as CSOs log in and renew their information. If you are not registered, you can register to the CSOs database by using the link so that other organizations can reach you.
STGM CSOs Database, which you can access from the STGM website, will be launched in a very short time.
