EUSAIR Strategy and European IPA ADRION Programme
San Marino in the EUSAIR Macroregional Strategy
San Marino in the Interreg IPA ADRION programme

Following the accession of the Republic of San Marino to the Adriatic and Ionian Initiative - AII (2019) and to the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region - EUSAIR (2022), San Marino was automatically included as an eligible country within the European Transnational Cooperation Programme Interreg IPA ADRION, a financial instrument that facilitates the implementation of the Strategy. Thanks to this important achievement, San Marino has taken a further step towards European integration and, for the first time, has joined a European transnational cooperation network.




Following the new possibility for San Marino to access the Interreg-VI IPA ADRION calls for proposals, the first call for proposals for the 2021-2027 programming will be open from 4 April to 30 June 2023.


The call for proposals constitutes the first important opportunity for public and private entities from San Marino to compete in the design and implementation of European projects, in partnership with the other eligible countries of the Adriatic and Ionian region.


In the next few weeks, an Info Day will be organised in San Marino to present the technical details of the call, during which, thanks to the collaboration with the experts of the IPA ADRION Joint Secretariat, it will be possible to carry out further in-depth analyses.

News and Events

On 10 November 2023, the event “Skills development for the sustainable growth of the Adriatic-Ionian region”, recognised by the European Union as part of the calendar of activities organised in the framework of the European Year of Skills, took place in San Marino.


This event was aimed at raising awareness on crucial issues such as sustainable growth and non-formal education, by promoting concrete actions to preserve the environment and to ensure a better quality of life for all citizens of the Adriatic-Ionian Macroregion.


The organisation of the conference was boosted by the Forum of Adriatic and Ionian Cities and involved the San Marino institutions which usually collaborate in activities related to San Marino's participation in EUSAIR: Department of Foreign Affairs, University of San Marino, Chamber of Commerce and San Marino Innovation.

14.07.2023 - SEMINAR "EUSAIR & INTERREG IPA Programmes: Opportunities for education institutions and local communities"

The inclusion of young people in EUSAIR Governance and Pillars is at the top of the agenda of the Strategy's governing bodies. However, as underlined in the Manifesto for Young People by Young People to Shape the European Cooperation Policy, young people and local communities need to be further informed about the opportunities available and the calls of the various EU cohesion instruments.


This Seminar brings together schools, universities, youth associations, INTERREG programmes and representatives of EUSAIR, with the objectives of: i) informing potential beneficiaries about the EUSAIR strategy for the region and concrete involvement opportunities; ii) informing youth organisations of the opportunities arising from INTERREG IPA programmes, including schools and universities; and iii) raise awareness of Youth Manifesto recommendations for wider inclusion of young people in EU-funded programmes and calls.


This Seminar is part of a series of events organised by the Cooperation and Development Institute (CDI) in collaboration with the European Commission, and is organised in collaboration with the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region and the Directorate of European Affairs of San Marino.
