Strategy Board of the Territorial Strategy under the Bulgaria - Türkiye Programme 2021-2027 held its 2nd meeting


The Strategy Board of the Territorial Strategy under the Interreg VI-A IPA Bulgaria - Türkiye Programme 2021-2027 adopted a Methodology for Identification of Project Ideas and a Guide for Application with Concept Notes. Approved documents are an important step in the actual launch of the implementation of the Strategy.

The Methodology envisages selection of project ideas to be carried out in two stages. The aim is to be selected the best quality and mature ideas with the greatest contribution to the Strategy, which shall be subsequently developed and submitted for funding as full project proposals. The priority "Integrated development of the cross-border region" is an entirely new approach based on the Territorial Strategy and the involvement of a wide range of stakeholders in the evaluation process.

In the Guide for Application with Concept Notes emphasis is placed on project ideas that aim to establish strong partnerships for the implementation of integrated projects with a multi-sectoral focus and high added value for achieving sustainable economic growth of the cross-border region.

Strategy Board members agreed on the need to start the process of selection of project ideas as quickly as possible and with full mobilization in order to achieve the financial objectives set in the current and next year of the implementation of the Strategy.

Participants in the meeting highlighted as a serious challenge the nature of the task for evaluation of project ideas that the Strategy Board members should carry out and the need to undergo the relevant trainings.

The second meeting of the Strategy Board was chaired by Mr. Georgi Dimitrov, Mayor of Municipality of Karnobat, and Mr. Sıdkı Zehin, Deputy Governor of Edirne. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Managing and the National Authorities of the Programme.
