Instrument for Pre-Accession - IPA

For the period 2007 – 2013, the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) will be the sole funding vehicle for pre-accession assistance to candidate and potential candidate countries.

IPA is made up of five components: support for transition and institution-building, cross-border cooperation, regional development, human resources development and rural development. The first three components concern the candidate countries and the potential candidate countries. However, the last three components concern the candidate countries only, with the aim of preparing them for adopting and implementing the cohesion policy and managing the Structural Funds.
