In the current context of economic crisis and budgetary restrictions at every level, the resources available to the regions are withering away.
European funds have always been of paramount importance for European regions, and now more than ever at this crucial time when future programmes are being planned for the period from 2014. This report aims to help as many regional actors as possible participate in European programmes, beyond the sole structural funds, trying to provide information about all the European funding opportunities, so that all regional projects can find a funding.
The report on information and access to European funds clearly shows what are the points of satisfaction as well as the points that need improvement on these matters.
