“Within the framework of the programme, the EU provides Ukraine with a free of charge EUR 5 million for the projects to be selected on a competitive basis in accordance with the rules of the programme. There are 4 project areas: Innovation and Social Responsibility, Environment and Cultural Responsibility, Better Infrastructure Connections and Energy Efficiency, and Well-Governed Danube Region.
