This paper is based on direct research carried out in the territory of Trotus Valley in order to identify both the absorption capacity in the area, as well as contributing factors and barriers for this process. In fact, the need for the research came from the desire of knowledge of local realities of attracting European funds and to identify the factors that favored the successful completion of projects and the barriers that have led in many cases to abandon the process.
