|Assistance Provided by the EU
The assistance provided to Cyprus by the European Union, and the
opportunities for participation in common programmes, fall into three categories:
- Financial assistance provided through the Financial
Protocols envisaged in the Association Agreement. The Financial assistance is presently
determined by the Fourth Financial Protocol.
- The EU programmes for third countries in which Cyprus
participates and which are non-contributary.
- The EU
programmes in which Cyprus participates which are contributary.
Cyprus is at present negotiating participation in a number
of additional EU programmes. A brief description of these programmes is provided below,
