Transition Assistance and Institution Building

One part of the assistance (Component I) focuses on implementing the main priorities of the European partnership. In particular it involves investment and measures aiming at institution building, as well as transition and stabilisation measures still necessary in the Western Balkans. It is delivered through annual national and multi-beneficiary programmes.

National programmes & Project fiches







The purpose of support under the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) programme is to help candidate and potential candidate countries and territories – the Beneficiaries – to progress towards fully meeting the Copenhagen political and economic criteria as well as adopting and implementing the EU acquis. The Multi-beneficiary actions will complement and add value to the support given under the National Programmes.

Cross-Border Co-operation

The other part of the assistance (Component II) supports cross-border cooperation activities between the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and EU member states as well as with a potential candidate country, i.e. Albania. It also helps the country to participate in the European Territorial Co-operation trans-national programme 'South-East Europe'.
