Integrated projects are projects, where each beneficiary implements a part of the activities of the project on its own territory. Symmetrical projects are the projects, where similar activities are implemented in parallel in the participating countries. Depending on the objectives and activities of the project, partners may choose one of the proposed options (see section 3.1.2. of the Guidelines for Applicants and Beneficiaries), provided the project delivers a clear cross-border cooperation impact and benefits, and demonstrates added-value to EU strategies and programmes.
