Twinning was launched in May 1998 as one of the primary EU tools for institution building, with the aim of providing assistance to the Beneficiary Country through modernization and reorganization of its public administration, human resources development, as well as harmonization of legislation and provisions with the acquis of the EU.
In order to face this challenge the EU has devised Twinning as an instrument of administrative cooperation between public administration of the Beneficiary Countries and institutions of the EU Member States with the aim of assisting and transferring knowledge related to application and implementation of the acquis of the European Union.
The overall objective is to decrease the morbidity and mortality rates within the targeted population in the Republic of Croatia.
The implementation period of this Twinning Project will be 12 months.
The total budget of this project: 641.500,00 EUR
Transition Facility Contribution (95%): 609.425,00 EUR
