Summary of project results


The project was created due to the need to give support to partnerships in the sphere of cross-border cooperation. The beneficiary of the project was in a long term cooperation with individual partners and at the same time carried out activities in the border area. The partners of the project displayed long term interest in the realisation of activities which are targeting youth work and experience Exchange. These activities were difficult to carry out due to the lack of finances. Without the support of Cross-border cooperation programme, no exchange stays, concerts or conferences would have been possible in such measure while partners would also have no means to experience the cultural and historical specifics of border territory. Also, the mutual getting to know each other and creation of partnerships would not be possible. The implementation of this project thus contributed significantly to further social and economic development of the border region. The partnership network which was created allows its members to carry on in further cooperation. The project allowed for the partnership networks to be sustained and allowed for the creation of new networks on the side of Slovak and UA partners.
