The (Interreg VI-A) IPA Romania-Serbia Programme has been approved by the European Commission

Today, 20.07.2022, the European Commission approved the (Interreg VI-A) IPA Romania-Serbia Programme, which is thus the first Interreg IPA Programme adopted for the 2021-2027 programming period.

At the same time, the (Interreg VI-A) IPA Romania-Serbia Programme is also the first European funded Programme under the 2021-2027 Cohesion Policy, submitted by Romania to the European Commission, for which the role of Managing Authority is fulfilled by the Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration.

Thus, upon the adoption of the Programme by the European Commission, the Monitoring Committee will launch, in the upcoming period, the consultations on the documents needed for the launch of the first call for project proposals.

In the 2021-2027 programming period, the Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration is acting as Managing Authority for the (Interreg VI-A) IPA Romania-Serbia Programme, which will have a total budget of 87.725.681 EUR and will finance projects on environmental protection and adaptation to climate change, healthcare and education, tourism and culture and border management.

The funding for these priorities will be 85% from the Instrument for Pre-Accession assistance (IPA III), 13% Romanian state budget co-financing and 2% as own contribution of the Romanian beneficiaries. Serbian beneficiaries will provide 15% co-financing as their own contribution.

The Programme area includes three counties in Romania (Timiș, Caraș-Severin and Mehedinţi), as well as six districts in Serbia (Severno Banatski, Srednje Banatski, Južno Banatski, Braničevski, Borski și Podunavski). In order to ensure a transparent framework for institutional collaboration, starting with October 2019, the Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration (MDPWA) organized consultations with key actors in the Programme area and posted on the Programme website, all documents related to the programming process, for public consultation.
