Treaties of Rome at 60

On 25 March 1957, the representatives of six states Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherland and, at that time, West Germany, signed two treaties in Rome, establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM).

Treaties of Rome represent the cornerstone of the modern Europe. On one hand, a common market has been created, symbolised by four freedoms: free movement of people, goods, capital and services. On the other, joint research in the field of atomic energy for peaceful use began. As a result, the citizens of the European Union enjoy one of the highest living standards and, most outstandingly, live in a peaceful area.

The European integration was already stated in the preamble of the Treaty establishing the EEC, in which the signatory states were “determined to establish the foundations of an ever closer union among the European people”. The Interreg ADRION programme is honoured to be part of this European vision and to contribute, together with its Partner States, to the future of Europe.

A Practical Guide to EU Funding 2014-2020

Having trouble finding the right EU fund for your project? The Research Centre of the European Parliament, also known as the EP Think Tank, has published the latest Guide to EU funding for the period 2017 -2020. Readers can look for simple information about funding opportunities for the most relevant EU funds. The main funding themes have a dedicated section about its aims and a list of potential beneficiaries, which is not an exhaustive one.

However, funding opportunities may also be found in other areas. Much depends on the nature of the project submitted, its scope and priorities. As new funding elements emerge on a continuous basis, the guide will be updated regularly in order to keep up with the changes.
