Background information

Launched in 2004, the CEI Know‐how Exchange Programme (KEP) is a development instrument aimed at supporting transfer of experience and expertise from organisations in the EU to peers in the non‐EU countries within the CEI region. The rationale of the Programme is based on the assumption that the economic development in non‐EU countries can be strengthened through the transfer of best practices and benchmarks already in place in more advanced economies. These transfers could have an invaluable impact by ensuring social cohesion and economic dynamism in the region. By co‐financing capacity building and technical assistance projects, the KEP offers grants to institutions willing to share their experience with their partners inthe non‐EU CEI Member States, thus helping non-members to advance on their path towards EU standards and policies. The KEP focuses on areas of intervention where EU‐CEI countries demons trate strong‐rooted experience, and where beneficiary states exhibit the strongest need for assistance. The CEI Fund at the EBRD has provided co‐financing to KEP projects since the Programme’s launch in 2004.
