The EU4Energy communication project was launched in June 2017 with the objective to increase the visibility of EU-funded bilateral and regional assistance in the energy field. It covers the six Eastern Partnership countries.
The EU4Energy initiative aims to show case the benefits of EU support and to highlight the impact of EU energy cooperation on the daily lives of citizens in the beneficiary countries. It operates under the umbrella of the OPEN ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ communication project and builds on the communication platforms/channels already developed under this project.
The general objective of this project is to contribute to the improvement of public perception of the EU and a better understanding of European policies and their impact through the regional and bilateral EU support and cooperation programmers in the Eastern Partnership Countries.
