Abstract: The Roma­nia — Bul­gar­ia project, Inter­reg V‑A 2014–2020 Pro­gram was start­ed on Feb­ru­ary 12, 2015 (RO — BG 1) and financed by the EU from the Euro­pean Region­al Devel­op­ment Fund with the aim of devel­op­ing the bor­der area between the two coun­tries by financ­ing of joint projects, and in the peri­od 2021–2025 we pro­posed to con­tin­ue the research through a new Project Roma­nia — Bul­gar­ia, Inter­reg V‑A Pro­gram. The strate­gic frame­work of the pro­gram brings an extra­or­di­nary per­spec­tive for region­al devel­op­ment that is based on con­crete and mea­sur­able results with the abil­i­ty that in the next 25 years, the two coun­tries, Roma­nia and Bul­gar­ia, offer the most mod­ern infra­struc­ture and per­spec­tives to set­tle the active pop­u­la­tion from the 18–55 age seg­ment, ben­e­fit­ing from numer­ous liv­ing and work­ing con­di­tions and at the same time the growth of com­pet­i­tive and sus­tain­able com­mu­ni­ties through the effi­cient use of resources and the cap­i­tal­iza­tion of growth oppor­tu­ni­ties relat­ed to belong­ing to the Danube and Black Sea regions. Our project is a very well-artic­u­lat­ed guide that will con­tin­ue the doc­u­men­ta­tion that will also help to start the work nec­es­sary to build an eco­nom­ic inter­con­nec­tion plat­form to ensure the con­sis­ten­cy of the 12 states locat­ed between the Adri­at­ic, Baltic and Black Seas with what is meant by the Danube Cor­ri­dor. The main eco­nom­ic fields in which the I3M mem­ber coun­tries are inter­est­ed are defined by three major pil­lars: Ener­gy, Trans­port, Dig­i­ti­za­tion. We are strong­ly engaged, both I, in the posi­tion of coor­di­na­tor, Prof. Dr. Eng. Cris­tiana Sir­bu, pres­i­dent of the GIEDD Foun­da­tion, as well as our part­ners from the Asso­ci­a­tion of Danube Munic­i­pal­i­ties “Dunărea” in Bul­gar­ia, to cor­re­late the data processed through the Roma­nia — Bul­gar­ia Project 1, Inter­reg Pro­gram V‑A 2014–2020 with a new Project Roma­nia — Bul­gar­ia 2 2021 ‑2025 which we pro­pose to con­nect the main Danube cor­ri­dors, as well as the Black Sea to the I3M Mega Project.
