The Joint Managing Authority of the Joint Operational Programme „Black Sea Basin 2007-2013” is pleased to announce that, in March 2011, the European Commision decided to allocate 2 900 275 extra millions to the ENPI budget of the Programme, which now amounts 24 196 790 ENPI funds.
We hope that the successful implementation of the selected projects under the first call for proposals and the high number of good quality applications forseen to be submitted under the second call for proposals will determine further increase in the funds allocated by the European Union for the Joint Operational Programme „Black Sea Basin 2007-2013”.

The training sessions are organised by the programme management structures and are aiming to enhance capacity of beneficiaries to collect, consolidate and report the progress achieved by the projects.
