The EU Programmes

The aim of the EU programmes (formerly known as the Community Programmes) is to provide support to the policies of the European Union, improving cooperation between EU Member States and their citizens in different areas: culture, science, environmental protection, entrepreneurship, consumer policies, education, health, the judiciary, and fiscal and customs policies, etc.

The conclusions of the Thesalloniki Summit of June 2003 enabled the participation of the Western Balkans countries in the EU programmes, aiming at supporting their efforts to the EU integration by providing exchange of good practices, experiences and knowledge.

The participation of the Western Balkan countries in these programmes is governed by a framework agreement on the participation of each individual country. By entering into force of the Framework Agreement between the European Community and Bosnia and Herzegovina on the general principles for the participation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Community programmes as of 2007, Bosnia and Herzegovina has been provided with access to each single programme.

Participation in EU programmes is enabled by publishing calls for project proposals and awarding financial support to the selected projects. Projects supported by the EU programmes usually require participation of partners from several countries - beneficiaries of the programme and the co-financing of projects by project applicants.
