INTERREG Europe 2021-2027

Interreg Europe is a cooperation programme, co-funded by the European Union. This programme is helping local, regional and national governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy by creating an environment and opportunities for sharing solutions to regional development issues. Interreg Europe is supporting the exchange of good practices and policy learning among European regions in 29 countries - the EU27, Norway and Switzerland.

The first call opened on 5 April 2022 and close on 31 May 2022 at noon CEST (Paris time).
The call supports projects in five thematic EU priorities and one non-thematic issue on better governance: Smart, Green, Connected, Social, Citizens and Governance.

This is a call for proposals for interregional cooperation projects. These projects gather policy-relevant organisations from different countries in Europe working together on a common regional development issue. The first three years of the projects (‘core phase’) are dedicated to exchange and transfer of experience among the participating partners in order to improve the policy instruments addressed by the project. In the fourth and last year (‘follow-up phase’), the regions mainly focus on monitoring the results and impact of the cooperation.

The programme is structured around one single cross-cutting priority, the Interreg-specific objective ‘a better cooperation governance’. This means that beneficiaries can cooperate on any topics of shared relevance in line with their regional needs, as long as this falls within the scope of cohesion policy.
