The BACID Fund (building administrative capacity in the Danube region & Western Balkans) is designed as a grant scheme, which provides funding for know-how transfer actions implemented by Austrian institutions or experts for benefit of partners from targeted countries. It is built upon the experience of the Know-how Transfer Center (KTC) that was established in 1992 within the Austrian Association of Cities and Towns, in order to facilitate administrative cooperation of cities and municipalities in the new democracies of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) with Austrian counterparts. It was funded by ADA and included about 2000 successfully completed projects. Since end of 2008, the KTC was managed by KDZ on behalf of the Association of Austrian Cities and Towns.

The third call for proposals under the BACID Fund has been launched. It will be open till 7 March 2016. The priority topic of this Call is Inclusive City.
