Journey to growth!

One needs to look no further than the land and seas we share. What happens on the one side of the border affects the other side as well. The need for joint actions is gradually becoming the normal than the exception
 
Albania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Greece come closer and cooperate within the new Interreg “Balkan-Mediterranean” Programme. In the Balkan Peninsula and the Mediterranean Sea, we have a new possibility to join efforts, beyond mountains, seas and borders
 
BalkanMed acts as a driver and pioneer for tackling common challenges and needs in our countries, by joining opportunities, sharing ideas, discovering innovation
40 million Euros are offered by the European Union together with Albania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Greece

Enterpreneurship and Innovation

Our actions build on the BalkanMed area’s potential and improve competitiveness, while promoting and supporting entrepreneurship. The small and medium-sized enterprises are encouraged to find their way through to cooperation by forming networks, creating clusters and inspiring cluster policies
The capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises is enhanced through new technology applications and training. Our entrepreneurs are enabled to acquire the necessary skills and tools to boost competitiveness, to gain access to other markets and introduce innovation in all phases of business cycle. By linking education and business, we place innovation into the heart of business practices and processes

Environment

In the BalkanMed area, we join efforts to preserve and manage the rich natural heritage of our region. After all, nature is our home; touristic development of our region matched with environmental protection and resources efficiency can ensure economic and sustainable growth for all
In order to best develop the rich potential of our region, we, the local actors, apply joint environmental education and training activities, share our experiences and practices and build our capacity for the future

Projects

The Interreg BalkanMed programme funds a diverse range of activities.
Our joint projects aim to deliver real benefits to the people and to build sustainable links in the whole BalkanMed area.
Projects are selected through a competitive procedure and should have a strong focus on the Programme’s themes for cooperation.
There is no “good or bad idea” for a project, but “suitable solutions” to specific needs. Our target is the result and the result is a better everyday day life for all
