Background and Objectives
The Adriatic Ionian Network of Universities, Regions, Chambers of Commerce and Cities (AI-NURECC Initiative) is an initiative of the key stakeholders of the Adriatic Ionian Regions, which have decided to join their efforts aiming at supporting the European Union Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Sea Region (EUSAIR) implementation, ensuring deep and broad territorial coverage, at regional and local level. The EUSAIR was officially launched by the European Commission on 18 June 2014 and approved by the EU Council on 24 October 2014. The EUSAIR covers eight countries: four EU Member States (Croatia, Greece, Italy, Slovenia) and four non-EU countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia).

The Initiative will contribute to the achievement of the EUSAIR political objectives and to foster the sound implementation of its Action Plan.  The final goal will be to promote a structured dialogue and a stronger, more effective cooperation among Regional & Local Authorities, Universities, Chambers of Commerce, youth associations and networks, entrepreneurs and civil society. AI-NURECC actions will integrate and follow the relevant work prepared by the Presidency of the EUSAIR/AII (programme of the Presidency)

Four preparatory actions will be set up:

  1. the AI-NURECC Youth Action;
  2. the AI-NURECC Creative and Cultural Industries Action;
  3. the AI-NURECC Task Force on Tourism and Cultural Heritage; and
  4. the AI-NURECC Skills Development & Training Action.

These actions will be accompanied by two specific actions, to be developed in cooperation and synergy with the AI Stakeholder platform, aimed at fixing the conditions to operate across the whole macro-region:

  1. the AI-NURECC-focused Communication Campaign
  2. the AI-NURECC Observatory on Multilevel Governance.
