Presentation of the Region

The Regional Office for Cross Border Cooperation Timisoara (RO CBC Timisoara) was created in order to offer the administrative, technical and logistic support necessary in the implementation for the Romanian-Serbian cross-border cooperation programmes, as it is Interreg-IPA Cross-Border Cooperation Romania-Serbia Programme, Romania-Serbia IPA Cross-Border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013 and the Neighbourhood Programme Romania-Serbia 2004-2006. Our main task is to provide professional services to potential applicants, to efficiently administrate the programs and projects funded by the European Union and to sustain the efforts of the border region in the social and economic development process.

We started our activity in September 2005, being legally founded by the association of Regional Development Agency West Region (RDA West) with the Regional Development Agency South-West Region (RDA South-West Oltenia) from Romania.

The headquarters are located in Timis County, Romania, in the city of Timisoara - an important historical landmark and a place of multicultural influences, having traditional connections with Serbia. In order to bring the information and services closer to the Romanian beneficiaries, we operate 2 offices in Caraș-Severin and Mehedinti counties. In the Serbian part of the border there is a Cross-Border Local Office in Vršac, having as its main role to serve as a local contact point for Serbian potential beneficiaries/project partners and to disseminate information at regional level, to support projects development in Serbia.
