Cooperation with the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia

Supporting cooperation between local and regional entities in the CEI Member States is key for pursuing the goals of the CEI, as well as the priorities set within its Local Dimension (LD). In this regard, cooperation between the CEI-Executive Secretariat (CEI-ES) and the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia (RAFVG) represents a success story that can be replicated with other local and regional authorities in CEI Member States.

Cooperation between CEI-ES and RAFVG operates through agreed Joint Work Programmes (JWPs), which include several activities and initiatives based on common priorities and on the needs of CEI Member States in the following fields: health, social innovation, bio & blue circular economy, scientific cooperation & science diplomacy, climate resilience, and culture.

The implementation of the JWPs, under the responsibility of the Project Management Office (PMO), enables the CEI-ES to collaborate with many regional stakeholders, such as universities, research centres, scientific parks, think tanks, private companies, associations, non-governmental organisations and public institutions.
