Taking into consideration the need for a common understanding of the provisions of the Articles 16.2 and 16.3 (Suspension by the Lead Beneficiary) from the Grant Contract, the Managing Authority has issued an Instruction to support the beneficiaries by indicating the procedural steps to be followed and the communication flow. Further, it clarifies the suspension start date if the request is initiated by the Managing Authority (article 16.4 from the Grant Contract).
The text of the Instruction no 21 from 26 February 2020 to the Beneficiaries of the ENI CBC Black Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020 regarding the date from which the suspension of the project implementation period starts / ends is available 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.
