The Interreg Europe programme allows regional and local public authorities and other players of regional relevance across Europe to exchange practices and ideas on the way public policies work, and thereby find solutions to improve their strategies for their own citizens.
Projects must focus on one of these topics
- Research and innovation
- SME competitiveness
- Low-carbon economy
- Environment and resource efficiency
The programme finances two types of action:
a) Interregional cooperation projects.
b) Policy learning platforms.
Any organization based in the 28 EU Member States, as well as Norway and Switzerland are eligible for Interreg Europe funding. Your organization can involve partners from regions that are not represented yet, check the list.
