Short description

The Visegrad+ Program was estab­lished in 2008 from the so-called Flexible Fund. Visegrad+ is a grant pro­gram cre­ated to admin­is­ter and finance projects which con­tribute to the democ­ra­ti­za­tion and trans­for­ma­tion processes in selected coun­tries and regions, espe­cially non-EU mem­ber states in Eastern Europe and the Southern Caucasus (the EU’s Eastern Partnership), and the Western Balkans.

So far, projects were focused on Belarus, Georgia, Serbia, and the whole Western Balkan region (see pre­vi­ously approved project pro­pos­als).

The pri­or­ity tar­get coun­tries, pri­or­ity ori­en­ta­tion and project top­ics (see below) for Visegrad+ projects are defined and approved by the deci­sion of the Conference of Ministers. Calls for pro­pos­als are announced on the Fund’s web­site. Projects are reviewed and admin­is­tered by the Fund’s Secretariat; project pro­pos­als selected by the National V4 Coordinators are for­mally approved by the Council of Ambassadors and Conference of Ministers. Project top­ics are selected in com­pli­ance with the Statute of the Fund.

Priorities for 2014:

  1. Rule of Law and Fundamental Rights
  2. Good Governance
  3. Regional Cooperation
  4. EU Approximation
  5. Environment and Sustainable Development
