Euro-Mediterranean cooperation: ENI CBC Med Programme unveils new logo

An evolution rather than a revolution: the Programme is pleased to introduce you its new visual identity.

The ENI CBC Med Programme has a new logo! Here is a glimpse at some of the main design considerations taken into account for the "refresh" of our identity.

A cooperative process

The representatives of the 13 participating countries were involved in the process of updating the Programme’s visual identity. Following a round of consultations aimed at testing several logo proposals, the final version was agreed unanimously by all countries.

Evolving not changing

The new logotype keeps the main features of that used under the 2007-2013 programming period: the sun made of people united together and the waves of the Mediterranean Sea.

However to clearly distinct the ENI Programme from the ENPI Programme, some new elements have been introduced including a different pay-off (from "Cross-border cooperation in the Mediterranean" to"Cooperating across borders in the Mediterranean"), a lighter font and the use of various colors in the waves. The number of colors in the sun has been reduced. 

Reflecting our values

The new logo continues highlighting the Programme’s core values: cooperation, solidarity, co-development, respect of diversity, mutual understanding.

About the ENI CBC Med Programme

While the Mediterranean is facing huge challenges - such as forced migrations, armed conflicts, terrorism, climate change, social exclusion - the EU-funded ENI CBC Med focuses on cooperation and common solutions in order to contribute to a more competitive, innovative, inclusive and sustainable area.

The Programme, adopted on 17 December 2015 by the European Commission, is part of the "Cross-Border Cooperation" (CBC) component of the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).

It provides a unique multilateral framework for the implementation of cooperation projects on both sides of the Mediterranean Basin in four main thematic fields:
• Business and SMEs development, including sustainable tourism;
• Support to education, research, technological development and innovation;
• Promotion of social inclusion and fight against poverty;
• Environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation.

The budget allocated by the EU to the Programme is €209 million, out of which 188 dedicated to project financing.

ENI CBC Med is the follow-up for ENPI CBC Med 2007-2013. The Programme is managed by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia on behalf of the European Commission and the 13 participating countries (Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Palestine, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia).
