With a special focus on Romania’s experience in managing European funds, IDEP organized a total of 12 conferences from September 2022 to March 2024, gathering over 1280 key participants from both sides of the Prut River. These events laid the foundation for numerous sectoral and inter-institutional partnerships that will facilitate access to European funds for Moldova.

With Romania’s support, Moldova has the potential to significantly increase the absorption rate of European funds from new programs, and IDEP is committed to contributing to this evolution by continuously training and preparing the stakeholders involved in project implementation.

By creating a network of cooperation and inter-institutional partnerships, along with adequate training for Moldovan implementers, the aim is to ensure efficient absorption of European funds and prompt alignment with European standards.

In this context, IDEP developed the concept of “Europe in the home, locality, and small business of the citizen” (ECIPES), as well as initiatives such as the Market Outlet (RM-EU Highway) and the recreational program #DiscoverEU Iași-Chișinău-Odesa, all oriented towards promoting European values and opportunities in the Republic of Moldova.
