THEMATIC PRIORITIES

 

The Italy-Croatia CBC Programme’s overall objective is “to increase the prosperity and the blue growth potential of the area by stimulating cross-border partnerships able to achieve tangible changes”. The main key assets are related to the maritime dimension of the Programme due to the central location of the Adriatic Sea: 

  • the maritime character of historical trade relations;
  • the joint asset of natural areas and cultural heritage;
  • the shared importance of economy branches exploiting the rich natural sea-based resources; 
  • the transportation patterns and socioeconomic processes. 

The challenge for the Programme is that maritime issues are not the subject of a specific Thematic Objective (TO) under ERDF, but rather should be seen as a cross-cutting issue. This creates the challenge of interpreting, prioritizing and integrating the maritime dimension in the selected Priority Axes. The Italy - Croatia Programme is composed of four Priority Axes responding to the identified key assets and challenges, within each of the four priority axes specific joint cross-border actions will be  supported and numerous outputs will be obtained.
