EU financial assistance available to local and regional authorities in the candidate and potential candidate countries for EU enlargement

The projects aims to identify which EU funds and programmes the sub-national authorities from the enlargement countries have access to, keeping in mind that possibilities for cooperation vary by country.

CASE experts prepare the note which should describe the general features of funds in place at the EU and national level and suggest easiest ways of accessing these for the local and regional authorities in enlargement countries. It will take the CoR study of 2014 as a basis and comprehensively update its content taking into account financial resources available within the Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA-II) for the current financial period (2014- 2020) and eventual findings of its Mid Term Review. The note will cover other funding opportunities available within the EU programmes open to the enlargement countries, including (but not limited to): Erasmus+, TAIEX, SIGMA, Horizon 2020, Creative Europe, etc.

The note will be published in the form of a brochure to be used as a guide for local and regional authorities in the enlargement countries. It should therefore be presented as a user-friendly overview, following a similar structure as in the CoR publication "EU financial assistance available to local and regional authorities in Eastern Partnership Countries".
