In its Communication “Agenda 2000” (July 1997), the European Commission proposed the progressive opening-up to the candidate and potential candidate countries of a broad range of Community programmes, as one of the intermediate objectives of accession. The objective of participation in the programmes is to enable the countries to familiarise themselves with the methods and policies of the European Union.
Serbian participation in Community Programmes represents a major step in meeting the criteria towards EU accession in the field of science, culture, employment, entrepreneurship and innovation, taxation and custom systems. It represents an important step in familiarising the country and its citizens with the Union’s policies and working methods.
To contribute to better understanding of Serbia and its citizens on European Union policies and working methods
