Visegrad 4 Eastern Partnership Program

Visegrad 4 Eastern Partnership Program (V4EaP) was ini­ti­ated in 2011 by the gov­ern­ments of the Visegrad Group coun­tries (see Joint Statement… from June 2011) to enhance the coop­er­a­tion between the Visegrad region and the coun­tries of the Eastern Partnership (EaP)—Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The main aims are facil­i­tat­ing the unique know-how of the Visegrad coun­tries with social and eco­nomic trans­for­ma­tion, democ­ra­ti­za­tion and regional coop­er­a­tion par­tic­u­larly through the devel­op­ment of civil soci­ety and sup­port of coop­er­a­tion among local gov­ern­ments, uni­ver­si­ties and indi­vid­ual citizens.

The pro­gram was launched in early 2012 with total bud­get of €1,456,800 under four sep­a­rate grant and mobil­ity pro­grams. Including a grant from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands in the amount of €1.5 mil­lion awarded to the pro­gram in June 2012, V4EaP is cur­rently the Fund’s biggest grant program.
