Regional calls for proposals represent an important opportunity for companies, public and private bodies. In fact, they allow you to take advantage of specific contributions to be allocated to various types of objectives: from internationalization, to the growth of SMEs, up to their digitization. In recent years, thanks to the intense activity of the European Union, Member States and regions have welcomed and distributed various financial resources through a huge number of calls for proposals. Among the most active territories, the Lombardy Region stands out, which has created an ad hoc system. The platform in question is called Siage and allows easy access to published calls, consult all the relevant documentation and send applications online, keeping up to date with the procedure. Once you have registered, you can freely access your Private Area. You can associate different profiles to the same user. For example, this mode is recommended for owners of companies or organizations. From this space, it is possible to fill out calls for tenders, provided that they are in line with the registered profile. If the system refuses access to the application, the profile probably does not meet the requirements indicated in the call. Before filling in the online application for access to the call for proposals, you can scroll through all the fields: in this way you prepare in advance everything necessary to enter all the data in a single solution. At the end, after completing all the forms and attachments, you will be able to make the online application. The progress can be monitored through the private area. In addition, the Lombardy Region can request any changes or documents to be added to the application: the procedure can always be carried out from the personal profile.
