The Monitoring Committee of Interreg NEXT Romania-Ukraine Programme decided to postpone the awarding of financial support for small-scale projects in the field of tourism and culture, because of the current situation in Ukraine. The funds allocated in the programme to finance this type of interventions will be the object of a new call for proposals, which will be launched at a later date.
Considering the current situation in the area covered by the Interreg NEXT Romania-Ukraine Programme on the Ukrainian side (Ivano-Frankivsk, Zakarpattya, Chernivtsi, Odesa oblasts), caused by Russia's aggression on the neighbouring country, the development of small-scale projects aimed at restoring monuments and historical sites, the rehabilitation of their access, as well as tourism promotion activities in this area cannot be supported.
The funds allocated to this field will be subject to a new call for proposals, which will be launched later, depending on the evolution of the situation in Ukraine.
Considering the fact that the Applicants' Guidelines for small-scale projects is available for public consultation at www.ro-ua.net until August 31, 2023, those interested in carrying out cooperation projects are invited to access the document without taking into account the information regarding PRIORITY 2 – Social development across borders, specific objective Enhancing the role of culture and sustainable tourism in economic development, social inclusion and social innovation.
