You are here


Within the framework of the standard ENI CBC MED 2014-2020 call for projects, ASCAME members are involved in more than half of the approved projects.

Barcelona, 7th February 2019 – ASCAME congratulates its members on winning standard projects funded by the ENI CBC MED 2014-2020.

The Joint Monitoring Committee (the decision-making body of the ENI CBC MED, which includes representatives from the 13 participating countries*) approved 41 projects at its meeting on 29 and 30 January 2018 in Cairo, Egypt.

More than half of the approved projects, have ASCAME members as leaders, partners and/or associate partners, representing dozens of Chambers of Commerce and other similar entities of the ASCAME network. It is therefore a success for the private Mediterranean sector, which is part of the 10% of projects approved out of the 439 project proposals submitted during this call.

Due to the quality of the project proposals submitted, the Joint Monitoring Committee decided to increase its share of funding by increasing the budget of the project call by 20%. The financing of the 41 standard projects represents 100 million euros.

ASCAME is pleased to congratulate its members who have once again shown their involvement and willingness to continue their work in the service of economic development in the Mediterranean.

The approved ENI CBC MED projects, which will start in the coming months, will focus on the key sectors of our region, namely: "the development of enterprises and SMEs; support for education, research, technological development and innovation; the promotion of social inclusion and the fight against poverty as well as environmental protection, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change".

ASCAME encourages its members to present new initiatives for the next strategic call for projects ENI CBC MED, which will soon be open, in order to continue contributing to North-South cooperation in the Mediterranean.
