The Romanian Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration, as Joint Managing Authority for the Joint Operational Programme “Black Sea Basin 2007-2013”, in cooperation with the Joint Technical Secretariat organized on the 18th of June, in Bucharest, the 3rd seminar for Grant Beneficiaries and Partners.
The main purpose of the seminar was to discuss with the Beneficiaries and Partners the key issues regarding the implementation of the projects and to find specific solutions for various matters encountered in their day to day activity.
One session was dedicated to technical implementation and monitoring of the projects financed within the Black Sea Basin Joint Operational Programme 2007-2013. The participants discussed about the basic rules in implementing the projects, the method for a proper allocation of resources (financial, technical and human) and the activities so that reach the objectives assumed.
Aspects of financial reporting and payment claim were of great interest, especially considering that most of the projects are preparing to submit the Interim Report and the beneficiaries and partners received assistance in correctly filling in the templates required.
Moreover, the aspects regarding the expenditure verification generated extensive discussions, various options being analysed regarding the most efficient way to develop the consolidated report in due time in order for the projects to timely submit the interim and final request for payment.
During the session dedicated to visibility rules applicable for communication materials of the projects, the participants received clarifications related to the requirements set out in the Visual Identity Manual and recommendations on how to develop a communication strategy for the projects.
Before closure, a presentation regarding the future ENI CBC Black Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020 and the status of the programming process was delivered to the participants.
The seminar was considered a success, as the participants had the opportunity to share specific issues and find common solutions.

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.
