Note: the texts under all the headings, with the exception of 'Results achieved', describe the situation before the start of the project.


Poorer regions do not have the financial means to prepare a good Final Project Proposal. Likewise, complex projects demand a costly preparation.


The goal of the PPF was to ensure the efficient preparation of good quality Final Project Proposals.

Executing Agencies / Intermediate bodies


The PPF could be used for mandates of competent external experts for preparing studies, e.g. feasibility studies, environmental impact assessments, and/or translations into English.


Resultados obtenidos:  

The Project Preparation has significantly contributed to the thorough preparation of Swiss funded projects. It allowed the Executing Agencies and Intermediate Bodies to elaborate high-quality project documentation. Therefore, the Project Preparation Facility played a major role in enabling Switzerland to approve all the projects and to fully commit all the available funds by June 2012.
