The Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro is responsible for analysing and reporting on political, economic, and integration developments in the country, promoting reform process, implementing and managing an EU financial assistance portfolio and raising public awareness about the EU's presence and involvement in Montenegro.
What we do
Our mission is to pursue EU policies and represent the Union in Montenegro in line with our headquarters in Brussels. We monitor and support progress towards European integration. To do this we provide substantial financial aid, which we implement in accordance with the principles of sound financial management.
The Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro started working in November 2007. Today, under the Head of Delegation, Ambassador Oana-Cristina Popa, more than 50 staff are working to help Montenegro towards EU accession.
The Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro is responsible for managing the EU Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) for the period 2007-2013, and its successor IPA II for the period 2014-2020. The Delegation is currently managing more than 200 EU assistance projects. These projects underpin Montenegro's reform efforts on its path to the EU.
The Delegation is divided into four sections: European Integration, Political, Press and Information Section (EIPPI), Cooperation (CPR), Finance, Contracts, & Audit (FCT) and Administration (SAD). Around two-thirds of the staff are from Montenegro and the remainder comes from the EU Member States.
