Twinning projects aim to institutionally support and develop EU candidate and neighbourhood countries, as well as some countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Twinning takes place between public institutions from the EU Member States and recipient countries and is financed from EU funds. It involves the exchange of experience in the implementation of EU law and allows for long-term cooperation between partners. The implementation of Twinning projects is based primarily on the organisation of specialised training courses in the beneficiary country and conducting study visits to institutions in the EU Member States country.

This cooperation contributes to the strengthening of Poland's international position by building a positive image on the international arena, developing political and economic contacts in beneficiary countries, promoting the Polish know-how, and supporting institutional transformation of aid recipients.
