This question was at the heart of the Training Academy, which took place on 3 October in Rize (TR), on the eve of the 4th AER Black Sea Regions Summit. The training focused on the EU programme for the Black Sea but also on other funding sources, such as the Black Sea Trust for regional cooperation.
Thanks to the input of the joint Managing Authority and through the advice of an experienced project partner, participants were able to get a good overview of the current programme and the key factors for the selection and success of projects. The training also enabled them to get further information about the future programme, in particular with regards to the new framework which will allow Turkish partners to act as main beneficiaries. The Training Academy was organised by the AER Academic and Training Centre.
