What is the aid intensity for cooperation projects?

It is recommended that the preparatory phases of cooperation should be treated like any other non-productive project and be funded 100% from public aid (total public aid from EU, national, regional or local sources).

When cooperation reaches the actual implementation stage normal rules on aid intensity apply depending on the type of operation undertaken:
•    Cooperation projects should be funded 100% from public aid if they are non-productive projects (c.f. group 1 of annex II of the EFF Regulation).  
•    If a cooperation project involves the private sector and productive investment the adequate aid intensity (below 100%) will need to be defined according to the nature of the project (c.f. group 3 or 4 of annex II of the EFF Regulation).
