KEP Call for Proposals 2020: six new projects funded by CEI Fund at the EBRD

With a total contribution of over EUR 220.000, the CEI Fund at the EBRD will enable the realisation of six capacity building projects that will be implemented in the period 2021-2022. These projects are financed in the framework of the CEI Know-how Exchange Programme (KEP), an instrument dedicated to offering co-financing to projects and programmes focused on the transfer of know-how and best practices from EU to non-EU CEI Member States.

The KEP offers grants to institutions from EU countries willing to share their experience and knowledge with their partners in the non-EU CEI countries.

The first project aims at improving the occupational health and safety (OHS) system in Moldova by transferring the Italian and Hungarian know-how to Moldovan institutions. The second project seeks to promote know-how exchange between the EU and the Balkan region on sustainable management of cultural heritage in response to climate change. The third project is focused on modernising knowledge and skills at the Automotive Training Center Serbia (ATC) to adapt them to the latest lines of development in automotive technology.

The KEP grant will also focus on developing and strengthening the competences related to 3D technology in medicine and health care. Another project will build on a collaboration between high education institutions that aims at moving a first step in filling the existing knowledge gap between the Western Balkans and the Europe Union in the field of high-performing light materials. Finally, the CEI fund will allow the sixth project to build capacities and deliver innovative tools to support the long-term sustainability of dietary assessment platforms for monitoring food consumption habits.

Overall, the projects will involve institutions from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia.
