- IPA Programme:
The NET-Age project is co-funded by the IPA Adriatic Cross-border Cooperation Programme. The Cross-border Co-operation Programme is a continuation and extension of the two previous Neighbourhood Programmes 2004-2006: ‘Italy-Adriatic’ and ‘Italy-Albania’. The overall aim remains largely unchanged: strengthening sustainable development capabilities in the Adriatic region through a concerted strategy of action between the partners of the eligible territories. This overall aim has been broken down into three specific objectives by the participating countries. These are:
- To foster sustainable economic growth: providing support for economic development through support for innovation and new technologies, strengthening research and innovation in order to boost competitiveness, and increasing the development of the Adriatic region through economic, social and institutional co-operation.
- To further develop the attractiveness and quality of life in maritime border regions: protecting and jointly managing valuable natural and cultural resources, preventing technological and natural risks, safeguarding biodiversity, and expanding sustainable tourism.
- To promote social cohesion and co-operation: fostering a real sense of sharing through support for human resources and labour market development, cultural exchanges and cross-border networks to promote and develop transport and information and communication services.
