The new projects, together with the 38 funded in 2016, make up for 70% of the total programme resources. Quite a result, given that the programme was only officially approved by the European Commission 2 years ago!
The Technical Assistance team (Resolvo, Resco and Soges) supported the evaluation process, with a team of 13 technical and thematic experts. They helped to ensure that the whole procedure (from call closure to approved project rankings) was completed in just 126 days!
