Romania has seven programmes. Three programmes will receive funding from the ERDF: the ‘Regional’ programme, the ‘Increase in Economic Competitiveness’ programme and the ‘Technical Assistance’ programme, while two programmes will be funded by the ESF and will focus on human resources development and improving administrative capacity. Two infrastructure-oriented programmes, the ‘Environment’ programme and the ‘Transport’ programme, will be funded by both the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund. All regions in Romania are eligible under the Convergence Objective.
