The capitalisation on IPA CBC programmes and concept of the new generation of IPA CBC programme (IPA CBC post 2020) were set as the key challenges for the upcoming period. These two will also be the focal activities of the CBIB+ phase 3 project in the upcoming period. Considering the current situation in the implementation of IPA CBC programmes 2014-2020 as well as the importance of these two issues for the successful implementation of the new generation of CBC programmes, the 7th CBC Regional Consultative Forum was fully dedicated to these topics.
The Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Serbia, in cooperation with the Ministry of European Integration of the Republic of Serbia and Directorate for European Integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina, have launched the 2nd Call for Proposals under the IPA Cross-border Cooperation Programme Serbia- Bosnia and Herzegovina 2014-2020.

Is “funded by the European Union” only a billboard with the EU flag on it in non-EU countries? Or, has it a much deeper meaning? How are the EU programmes which support socio-economic development perceived by local communities living on the borders of the European Union?

The first regional workshop for the staff of the joint technical secretariats (JTSs) of the EU-funded IPA cross-border cooperation programmes was organized in June 2014 in Durrës, Albania. This event gathered those directly involved in daily management of IPA CBC programmes and enabled exchange of experience and open discussions on the best solutions for common challenges in programmes’ implementation.

As all participants deemed the event very useful, the CBIB+ project, under the auspices of the European Commission, keeps organising them whenever there is a need.
