The Europe for Citizens programme

For the period 2007-2013, twinning activities come under Action 1 of the European Programme “Europe for Citizens”. Within the European Commission, the Education and Culture directorate general is responsible for the overall programme, whilst the management of the programme is undertaken by a specific Executive Agency.

For those who are interested in participating in this programme, we invite you to read all the detailed information on the programme, which is on the Executive Agency website, and in particular the programme guide which is available there in all the EU languages. The Agency’s website also includes a useful set of frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers.

However, we wish to give you the main information in order to help you to understand the rules and make your involvement easier.
