Regional


The regional priorities are based on the EU's policy for cooperation with the Partner Countries' regions as identified in its strategic documents concerning the neighbouring countries7, those for pre-accession to the EU8 and those in Central Asia9. Regional priorities are established for both types of eligible activities, Joint Projects and Structural Measures.
Multi-country projects, that is, projects involving institutions from at least two Partner Countries in the consortium, must respect the regional priorities or national priorities of the participating Partner Countries involved. That is, the theme of the project must be listed as regional priority for each of the participating Partner Countries in the same region,, or the theme of the project must be listed as a national priority for each of the participating Partner Countries.
Cross regional cooperation (between regions) is possible in multi-country projects provided that the theme of the proposal is listed as a regional priority or national priority for all the Partner Countries concerned.
