Adriatic Welfare MIX is a project funded by the 2nd call for proposal of the IPA Adriatic Cross Border Cooperation Program and in implementation phase. Adriatic Welfare MIX is multi beneficiary program that address differences in the welfare system between EU and non EU countries in Adriatic Sea. The Welfare Mix is the main model of the welfare state promoted in some European countries, but still little diffuse in the East Adriatic area, where the central administration plays the principal role in the welfare system leading and planning, as well as its funding. Adriatic Welfare Mix aims at valorize the existing services carried out in the counties of eastern Adriatic area, in order to stimulate and accelerate the ongoing regulatory reform by proposing a sustainable welfare mix model.
