The EU4BCC project is being developed in the framework of the Eastern Partnership (EaP).
The EaP is a specific Eastern dimension to the European Neighbourhood Policy that was launched in 2009. The aim of the partnership is to strengthen and deepen the political and economic relations between the European Union, its Member States and six Eastern European and South Caucasus ‘partner countries’: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

It contributes to the overall goal of increasing the stability, prosperity, and resilience of the EU’s neighbours as set out in the Global Strategy for the foreign and security policy of the EU.
