17.In the case of an international organization with offices and operational presence in Greece and in the donor states: if the Greek office applies as an applicant, 1) would the office of the organization in one of the donor states qualify as a partner, and 2) would this partnership scheme meet the eligibility criteria and prerequisites of the call?

A “partnership” requires the cooperation between two distinct legal persons. Subsidiaries or offices of the same legal person in different countries cannot be held as “partners” and therefore such a “partnership” would not be eligible.
