Institutional Capacity and Cooperation in the Danube Region

“Enhancing coordination between stakeholders and supporting policy development in the Danube region.”

Institutional Capacity and Cooperation in the Danube Region (PA10) is one of the priorities of the EU Strategy for Danube Region that was adopted by European Commission in 2010.

Its main aim is to promote cooperation between the 14 countries (Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Moldova and Ukraine) for enhancing sustainable development and competitiveness of this part of Europe. Coordination of the priority area 10 – Institutional Capacity and Cooperation – is in the hands of City of Vienna, Austria and CEP, Slovenia.

At CEP, we are focusing on involvement of young into the policy processes, facilitating discussions and dialogues on all levels and supporting projects that contribute to administrative capacity-building. 

This project is co-funded by the European Union (ERDF, IPA, ENI).
