Green light for 2014-2016 beekeeping programmes

19/07/2013

 

Apiculture programmes for 2014-2016 in all 28 Member States, co-funded by the EU, were approved in the Management Committee on July 18.

With € 33.1 million available from the EU budget each year total spending on these programmes increases slightly from the 2011-2013 schemes in order to take account of Croatia's accession.

Each Member State has access to the EU aid scheme by drawing up a three-year period apiculture programme detailing the measures it intends to implement and the expenditure foreseen for these measures.

The level of EU contribution is fixed according to the number of hives in the Member States.

Six specific measures can be funded within the frame of these programmes:

  1. technical assistance of beekeepers and groupings of beekeepers,
  2. controls of varroasis,
  3. rationalisation of transhumance,
  4. analyses of honey,
  5. restocking of hives and
  6. applied research.
