Switzerland intends its contribution to strengthen relations with partner EU countries and foster institutional partnerships. These partnerships are extremely valuable for Switzerland's integration in European networks. The cooperation promotes the exchange of knowledge and experience.
The Swiss contribution strengthens Switzerland's image as a reliable, responsible partner working constructively and with a sense of solidarity to find solutions to shared European challenges. The Swiss contribution therefore specifically supports partnerships that promote relations at national and sub-national levels between the partner countries and Switzerland, and between cities, municipalities, universities, research institutes, schools, businesses, NGOs and other institutions and individuals. Switzerland uses its specialised knowledge, experience, models and technologies to ensure the success of the projects.
