IPA Sector Programming

2 days
8 sessions
12 hours
5-10 participants

Programme goals

The programme is intended for the representatives of the institutions that are in charge of planning the assistance in accordance with the defined sectors by the EU. Sectoral programming is based on the premise that the state has defined comprehensive sector strategies, but the reality is that in most sectors there are segmented strategies, hence the need for joint planning and prioritization.

In addition, when programming, the state must use forms and documents established by the European Commission, and their use can be challenging.

  • Understand the purpose of sectoral programming of IPA funds
