Integrated Territorial Investment

The Italy – Slovenia Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 will apply the approach outlined in Art. 36 of the EU Reg. 1303/2013. ITI will constitute a significant implementation tool for the area comprised within the municipalities of Gorizia (IT), Nova Gorica and Šempeter-Vrtojba (SLO).
ITI will be mono-fund but plury-axis since the strategic programming of the EGTC GO area needs interventions in different Thematic Objectives and Investment Priorities. The ITI will constitute the main instruments for the implementation of the territorial development strategy of the target area, taking into account its three main pillars:
– capitalization of the experiences and outcomes of previous Italy – Slovenia programmes in order to ensure highest efficiency and effectiveness of public investments;
– revitalization of the “border based” economy while supporting its reconversion by use of identified strengths and assets;
– improvement of the quality of life of residents of the area by fostering the use of joint CB services.
The ITI will be managed and implemented by the EGTC GO as intermediate body in line with the provisions of Art. 11 of ETC Regulation 1299/2013.- Identification and development of projects for the benefit of the territory of the three municipalities associated in the EGTC GO through programs funded by structural funds or funds directly managed by the European Commission;

– Promotion of activities consistent to the pursuit of the EGTC GO goals through the implementation of initiatives (such as seminars, conferences, campaigns / communication platforms, collaborations with institutions and stakeholders at regional, national and international) to promote and support cooperation and strengthen territorial cohesion economic and social development of the territory;

– Support in the management of projects aimed at achieving the objectives of the EGTC GO;

– Management of the initiatives related to the new European programming period 2014-2020 with special reference to the tools of territorial integration in order to facilitate integrated strategies for local development.
