Facility Point Plus
The action ‘Additional Support to the Governance of the EU Strategy fo the Adriatic-Ionian Region (EUSAIR)’, in short Facility Point Plus, addresses the need for the generation of strategic (cross-pillar) projects in the Adriatic-Ionian macro-region and strengthening the capacities of the EUSAIR key implementers and other stakeholders to accelerate the implementation of the Strategy. The action aims at complementing the EUSAIR Facility Point strategic project (mainly the Work-package T.2 – Facilitating strategic project development and financial dialogue).

- support for macro-regional (cross- pillar) projects;
- capacity building for key implementers and other EUSAIR stakeholders.
