Participation of the OCTs in the EU programmes

25 October 2018

Report on the participation of the Overseas Countries and Territories in the European Union programmes during the period 2014-2018

The OCTs are eligible ‘by principle’ for participation in and funding from EU programmes reflecting their status as members of the European family. Unfortunately, their success in accessing EU funds other than the EDF remains very limited.

In line with OCTA Strategic Plan 2015-2020, the present report provides a detailed overview of OCTs’ participation in EU programmes for the period from 1 January 2014 until 31 July 2018, with special attention to research and innovation, support to SMEs, education, training and mobility, and the environment, which are topics of outmost importance for the OCTs.
