The final balance at programme level (unspent pre-financing) was agreed by the European Commission and it was reimbursed by the Joint Managing Authority on the 1st of February 2021.
The Joint Managing Authority would like to thank all the project beneficiaries and partners, as well all the programme authorities in the participating countries for the contribution to the implementation of the 2007-2013 programme.
Nevertheless, project beneficiaries and partners are kindly reminded that their involvement might still be needed in the following period (open-to-control period of 7 years after payment of final balance for the project), should the European Commission or Joint Managing Authority needs access to project documents or sites.
The note for beneficiaries and partners regarding closure of the programme and reminder of open to control period can be accessed here.
The European Union needs to show concrete results of its cooperation and development actions, and so does the ENI CBC community. At all times, communication activities should pursue the overall objective of increasing the knowledge of cross-border cooperation at the external borders of the EU and its position as a valuable, strategic tool for the EU and its neighbours.
DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) and The Joint Research Centre, in cooperation with DG Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO), are organising the Workshop “Smart Specialisation for Sustainable Blue Economy” on 6 July 2021, at 09.00 – 12.45 CET.
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.
