PREPARING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS, IN THE PROGRAMMING PERIOD 2014 – 2020

The North-West Regional Development Agency launched a series of “Workshops with the representatives of local communities in Northern Transylvania", organized within the development planning process for the 2014-2020. In these workshops the representatives of the local communities are informed about the "thematic objectives" and general conditions in which the projects must be submitted in order to have a chance to receive European funding after 2014. In the second part of the meeting there are organized debates on local priorities for generating project ideas. These project ideas will be – in a later stage – prioritized and included in the strategic projects list which accompanies the North-West Regional Development Plan 2014-2020.

Oradea Metropolitan Area encourages The North-West Regional Development Agency’s effort to identify the main issues; challenges faced by local communities in shaping the priority actions and generate project ideas that can meet these challenges, by January 2014. In this regard, please visit the links below to get information about the 2014-2020 programming period and help to establish a portfolio of priority projects in our region.
