About our Programme

The Interreg IPA Cross-border Cooperation Programme Croatia – Serbia 2014-2020 is a cross-border programme dedicated to achieve harmonious development of the Programme area and the European Union as a whole.

A lengthy title indeed, but every term in it carries great importance for Croatia’s and Serbia’s cooperation:

  • Interreg stands for territorial cooperation among countries of Europe. It is a framework developed by the EU that allows joint actions and policy exchanges between different states.
  • IPA is an abbreviation for Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance, meaning the EU framework that allows cooperation among EU Member States and candidate and/or potential candidate countries.   
  • Cross-border Cooperation (Programme), oftentimes shortened to CBC, refers to one of Interreg’s three strands of cooperation: cross-border, transnational and interregional.
  • Croatia and Serbia refer to countries participating in the Programme which have agreed to jointly overcome challenges crossing national borders and mutually use untapped growth potential in the cross-border area.
  • 2014 – 2020 stands for the current multiannual financial framework, i.e. the seven-year timeframe and planning horizon of using EU resources.
