New Cohesion Policy - Cyprus
"Since accession in 2004, Cyprus has achieved great things with EU Funds, for example the Urban development projects in Limassol and Paphos that improved the citizens daily lives and transformed the country into one of the most important tourism, trade and service-providing centres in the area. I look forward to our debate with Cypriot stakeholders on 3 July, on what our funds for 2021-2027 can do to continue improving the daily lives of Cypriot citizens. Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu
"For already 27 years, Interreg has been bringing EU citizens together across borders, for example by helping build bi-lingual childcare facilities, or cross-border train lines or hospitals. The discussions of 3 July in Nicosia, will also focus on how Interreg VI can further support Cyprus's efforts in cooperating with its neighbours for better living standards in cross-border regions".
Embracing Inclusion in Cypriot Schools
To mitigate the impact of economic crisis on education and prevent social exclusion of pupils at risk, the School and Social Inclusion Actions project co-funded by the European Social Fund supports 96 schools with a variety of measures. Actions include programmes to reinforce learning and creativity among pupils and their families, social-emotional support and the provision of educational tools in schools.
The project has helped already almost 15% of the country’s student population.
