Description of programme
"IPA CBC Bulgaria – Turkey"

The overall aim of the IPA II CBC Programme Bulgaria-Turkey is:
Strengthening the Bulgaria-Turkey cross-border cooperation capacity in the field of nature protection and sustainable tourism, leading to enhancement of European territorial cohesion.

IPA Bulgaria-Turkey includes the following priority axes:
Priorita Axis 1 Environment
Priorita Axis 2 Sustainable tourism
Priorita Axis 3 Technical Assistance

Sustainable growth, sustainable use of resources, is directly tackled by the Programme’s priority axis 1 “Environment”, covering the preservation of the environment as one of the most important assets of the area as well as disaster management, depicting a typical cross-border issue of major relevance for the area; sustainable development is therefore one of the main principles of the CBC Programme.

A strong relation to inclusive growth is visible for priority axis 2 “Sustainable Tourism”. This thematic field aims at capitalising the region’s natural, cultural and historical heritage. Competitiveness in general is regarded as a cross-cutting basis for regional development in the area. The IPA II CBC Programme Bulgaria-Turkey directly contributes to the flagship initiatives “Youth on the move”, “Resource efficient Europe”, and “Agenda for new skills and jobs”.

Financial details

Public support given by the Programme to undertakings from Bulgaria for activities of economic character will be granted under the de minimis rule. This implies that Bulgarian undertakings will receive grants only if they have not received public aid under the de minimis rule totaling more than 200 000 € within three fiscal years from the date of granting the aid. This ceiling is reduced to 100 000 € in the road transport sector. The public aid considered for the applicable de minimis ceiling comprises all aids granted by the national, regional or local authorities, regardless of whether the resources are provided from domestic sources or are partly financed by the European Union. However, this will not affect the possibility of an undertaking to receive public support under other state aid schemes.

The Turkish Applicants shall not submit the De Minimis State Aid Declaration nor any other equivalent document.
