The Partnership Programme aims to offer banknote equipment manufacturers and suppliers on the one hand, and clients and users on the other, a wide range of educational tools and materials free of charge to help them prepare for the launch of the new €10 banknote.


Under the Partnership Programme, the ECB and the national central banks specifically will:

  • communicate extensively on the need to adapt cash-handling machines and authentication devices to the new banknotes;

  • organise a series of events and actions leading up to the launch of the new €10;

  • deliver digital, audiovisual and print media about the new banknotes, in 22 official European Union languages, to assist partners in communicating with their target groups.


The European Central Bank and the national central banks of the Eurosystem will work closely with their registered partners as well as other interested parties to help them prepare for the introduction of the new banknotes. To be precise, they will:

  • make the new banknotes available for adaptation and testing of machines and devices on the premises of the national central banks towards end-2013;

  • lend new banknotes to partners and others from early 2014 after the unveiling of the new €10 for off-site testing and adaptation of machines and devices.



This programme is meant for all those who have a unique role to play in communicating about the introduction of the new euro banknotes, including:

  • banknote equipment manufacturers and suppliers, the vending machine industry, cash-in-transit companies and all others who deal with or use banknote equipment;

  • commercial banks, which have employees who are experts in cash handling;

  • retailers, who handle daily transactions with their customers, receiving cash from them and passing it on to them;

  • travel industry professionals, and bureaux de change operators, who are a vital source of information about currencies for travellers;

  • professional organisations, associations or other official bodies who, by their nature, provide information on cash-related matters.

For their part, the partners are expected to take all the necessary steps to ensure that their equipment will accept the new Europa series banknotes as and when they are issued. The next denomination to be introduced will be the new €10, in 2014.
