Governance of Regionally Integrated Projects using Innovative Tools. Structural funds implementation in an integrated approach

the project

Italian, Czech and Hungarian regions partners in this project were involved in Twinning projects for Institution and capacity building for the implementation of structural funds since 2002. In the course of the Twinning activities intense exchange of experiences started specially on the topics of partnership and project integration. On this topics the Italian experiences were presented, and the approches in the new member states were compared.

At the same time, all partner institutions were busy implementing operational programmes for objectives 1 and 2, and the Italian regions experiences proved the long time needed to develop an integrated approach in projects for structural funds, and the difficulties but at the same time the value added of the integrated approach. The exchange of experiences was also supported by study visits in Italy of the officers from new member states, that offered them the opportunity of first hand experience of institution building processes for the management of integrated projects.

Preparation of GRIP-IT proposal started in spring 2004, in parallel with the start up of the programmes in the new member states. The start up of the programme in the new member states proved the need to develop innovative tools for the project cycle, to promote integration using a bottom up approach, starting from the creation of project partnership, to evaluate value added from integration in the project selection procedures and to monitor impact of integrated projects.

Discussion on future programming rules for 2007-2013 lead the partners to the strong belive that the development of new tools for governance of integrated projects could be supported specially by an interregional cooperation, capable to accellerate the process of understanding of constraints and advantages in the implementation of integrated approach.

The proposal GRIP IT has been developed taking in to account the specific needs of each participant, and building on the experiences of each of them. The institution building for the governance of Integrated projects in Basilicata Region. The integration through systems of constraints and objectives in selection procedures of Friuli region. The integration based on regional objectives in the Hradec Kralove Region. The integration at microregional level of interventions under the National thematic Programme OPRD in Nyugat-Dunantul Region.
