Focus on Project Implementation

With the decision of the JMC not to have additional calls for proposals within the present programming period, the focus of the Programme is shifting completely to project implementation. The JTS and the MA will continue to provide support to all the projects funded within the Programme with a special attention paid to visibility and promotion of project outputs and results.

By the end of November 2012 all but two 1st Call projects will have been finalised, leaving only two more whose implementation stretches into the first quarter of 2013. This will conclude the enormous efforts put into the preparation, elaboration, selection and, finally, implementation of the first batch of projects financed within the Programme. All the valuable lessons learned and experiences gathered during the implementation of the First Call have already been applied to the Second Call projects, and will be in the future used as best practices for the Third Call projects in the efforts to make the implementation of the Programme and of the individual project as effortless and as smooth as possible.

Simultaneously with the closure of First Call Projects, with Final Progress Reports and final payments affected, the implementation of Second Call projects is running. By the end of 2012 it is expected that as many as 50 out of 60 Second Call projects will finish with implementation. The remaining projects will run well into 2013, when most of the Third Call project implementation is also expected to begin. As many of the projects awarded funding within the Third Call are large tourism infrastructure projects, all the resources will be mobilised and put towards supporting their successful implementation and achievement of long-lasting results.

Although a large part of the work related to the implementation of the projects is not visible, the effort going into the supportive work of reporting, financial management of the projects and elaboration and/or acquiring of all the needed documentation is not to be neglected. The many man-hours going into the preparation of progress and final reports, on communication activities towards the control systems, programme structures and among the project partners themselves make out the basis for successful implementation of every project.

Successful projects being the main interest of all the sides participating in the Programme, the programme implementing structures, and the JTS as the main administrative body put an extra effort into supporting the project partners in their work by keeping the communication channel constantly open, by taking part in monitoring visits to the project, participating in project events and by actively promoting project and programme activities.

The work put into the realisation of different activities can be best seen in the number and results of the successfully finalised projects.  To see the list of the projects so far finalised within the HU-HR IPA CBC Programme, please check the ‘finalised’ box in the Funded Projects Database on the Programme Web site, and click ‘Search’.
