In December 2020, the Metamorphosis Foundation and the partners of the project “Increasing Civic Engagement in the Digital Agenda – ICEDA”, co-financed by the European Union, awarded 15 sub-grants (small grants) through the first cycle of the small grant scheme LOT 1: grants for e-government support centers. The 15 small grants were awarded to 3 civil society organizations from Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia, which, as part of the ICEDA network, are working on the establishment and management of civic support centers for e-government through which they will help their target groups to use certain e-services and spread digital literacy.
In January and February 2021, the civil society organizations that are partners of the 15 awarded sub-grantees joined the ICEDA network, in order to act jointly and in a coordinated manner and work to promote greater civic involvement in the Digital Agenda for the Western Balkans. These are:
- Nehemiah Gateway Albania (Albania)
- Edit (Kosovo)
- Nest (Montenegro)

(Albania), CRTA – Center for Research, Transparency and Accountability (Serbia), NGO 35mm (Montenegro) and ODK – Open Data Kosovo (Kosovo).
