ENI CBC Med is the second generation of cross-border cooperation in the Mediterranean, building upon the positive experience of its predecessor, the ENPI (European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument) CBC Med Programme.
During the 2007-2013 period, the Programme funded 95 projects involving over 730 organizations coming from both shores of the Mediterranean Sea. These projects showed how cooperation is an engine for development and a way to contribute to improving the lives of people across the Mediterranean.
The funded projects, amounting to a total value of €204 million, were implemented in the following thematic areas:
- Economic growth and territorial development
- Cultural heritage and sustainable tourism
- Human capital
- Environmental sustainability

I was so impressed by the video mapping performance organized by the I AM project at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina that I decided to focus my master’s degree on the applications of augmented reality in the enhancement of heritage.
Mohammed Elsayed, Egypt
I learnt about how to cultivate the land, and how to take care of livestock. A very important aspect of the training was about commercial relationships and marketing. Things in my home have changed a lot. I am very happy. I have enough income to cover the cost of public transportation for my daughters to go to the university. My sons are glad and proud of me. Thank God, I am so happy with this project.

The participation to the MEDGENERATION business tour in Palestine allowed me to become a member of a network of like-minded people who might become referral or strategic partners, and who might provide business consultation or become advisors and want to support each other in growing their businesses. It was also a good way to build connections with talented designers, engineers who are looking for job opportunities.
