A programme, including multi-annual programmes, is a coordinated and integrated combination of actions leading to the achievement of one or more objectives in line with the Compagnia's goals and sphere of activities, including those involving more than one sector. This can consist of an integration of initiatives that are directly overseen (including the promotion of, or participation in, topics such as those mentioned in the next point), support for projects, and management support of external organisations. Calls for proposals are often used to identify these external organisations. For multi-annual programmes, besides the initial allocation of funds, annual refinancing may be assigned.
