More than 120 people took part last week in Tunis in the first public event on the cooperation and funding opportunities offered by the EU-funded programme Cross Border Cooperation in the Mediterranean Sea Basin (ENI CBC).
Participants were introduced to a selection of tangible achievements of two projects implemented in Tunisia, namely LACTIMED and LANDCARE MED, under the forerunner ENPI CBCMed programme. Presentations have highlighted the challenges related to the management of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation projects and practical tips to ensure efficient implementation and smooth collaboration between partners.
Finally, the thematic objectives and priorities of the ENI CBC Med Programme were discussed with participants as well as the main features of the first call for proposals. This latter, worth EUR 84.6 million and open to the 11 Programme Priorities, will be launched when at least three Mediterranean Partner Countries have signed the Financing Agreement with the European Commission.
The new ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020 follows the ENPI (European Neighbourhood Instrument and Partnership) CBC Med 2007-2013. Funded by the European Union and managed by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia (Italy), the Programme will offer cooperation opportunities between partners from the Mediterranean area in fields of intervention such as economic development, education and research, social inclusion and environmental protection. (EU Neighbourhood Info
