Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Region of Istria is today a recognised and renowned European region,and it has a clear perspective: competitive economy, vigorous science, creative culture, and constant environmental protection are only a few of the objectives we are already realising.

cooperation) in cooperation with foreign regions.

project objectives, the implementation of specific project goals, achieved through direct or indirect financial benefits, are the foundation of the knowledge necessary for success in the future use of European funds as a new member state of the European Union.
