Programming Document and programme complement


The ROP Programming Document is the strategic document defining the background, objectives, structure, allocation of funds per axis, relevant bodies and internal procedures of ROP. It has been negotiated and agreed with the European Commission.

The ROP Programme Complement is another strategic document summarising all the details that are relevant to the key areas of intervention of ROP, such as amounts allocated, eligibility criteria for applying, eligible projects etc. It is a document that has not gone through the approval of the EC, as it basically summarises information that can be found in the ROP Programming document.
