Interreg Europe is a funding programme that helps regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy.
The programme aims to improve EU cohesion policy through the exchange of experience, transfer of good practices and joint initiatives among 28 EU regions (+ Norway and Switzerland) on thematic objectives, such as innovation, SMEs, low carbon economy and environmental protection.
Interreg Europe supports cooperation across borders to jointly tackle common challenges and find shared solutions in fields such as health, environment, research, education, transport, sustainable energy and more. The programme also offers opportunities for regional and local public authorities across Europe to share ideas and experience on public policy in practice, therefore improving strategies for their citizens and communities.
