ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020 is a cross-border cooperation programme co-financed by the EU under the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI), involving coastal territories of 14 countries (Algeria, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Palestine, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia).

The Programme aims at fostering fair, equitable and sustainable development on both sides of the EU’s external borders.

The Programme finances cross-border cooperation projects, presented by public and private entities organised in cross-border partnerships, focusing on two main objectives: (i) promoting economic and social development and (ii) addressing common environmental challenges. The Programme articulates in four thematic objectives:

  • Business and development of SMEs;
  • Support for education, research, technological development and innovation
  • Promotion of social inclusion and fight against poverty
  • Environmental protection, adaptation to climate change and mitigation


Assistance is provided to the Managing Authority (MA) of the ENI CBC MED Operational Programme 2014-2020 through the mobilisation of an experienced team of experts to:

  • Establish the Joint Technical Secretariat (JTS) – technical and operational support in the management of the Programme
  • Directly support technical and financial monitoring and audit of the Programme
