The communication about the EU Funds it is crucial in order to support the understanding of the importance of these funds for the population. However if the communication is limited to the information about technical data, probably will not achieve the result which was intended to be achieved. It is very important to communicate the initial goals of funds and the way how will be achieved these goals by the funded projects. This is especially important in the case of so called “green” projects. It is important to make clear for the general public the importance of these projects for a sustainable future, but these projects are improving also the quality of life of the present generations.
