What are the opportunities as associated partners for South Mediterranean countries ?

Partners out of UE countries and outside the Programme, can be added to the active partnership as associated partners. Although they don’t receive funds (but travel and accommodation can be reimbursed – see Programme Manual), they contribute to the project works and benefit from the results.
The ambition of the Programme is to extend its impact beyond its geographical area. Associated partners from outside the Programme area (Southern and eastern Mediterranean shores notably as well as Balkan countries not included in the area) that have a particular interest in the Mediterranean territories linked to the 4 missions of the Programme are of great value.
