Turkey has benefited from the pre-accession financial aids of the EU to meet the criteria for EU membership. As from 2007, all the EU assistance to candidate and potential candidate countries has been brought under a single heading IPA. All components of the IPA are open to Turkey as a candidate country. According to database of the Central Finance and Contracts Unit (CFCU), totally 2 312 projects were carried out by various bodies in Turkey. About €286 million were distributed to governmental and non-governmental organizations, SMEs via projects. Literature review shows that information about EU funded projects in Turkey is limited. Therefore, this study aims at analyzing EU funds towards Turkey in terms of programme, organizations, performance ranks, expectations from projects and their results.
