Interreg first call for proposal in the 2021-2027 programming period
Interreg Europe helps regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy. They create an environment and opportunities for sharing solutions and policy learning. They aim to make sure that government investment, innovation and implementation efforts all lead to integrated and sustainable impact for people and place.
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 eligible area covers the whole European Union territory with its 27 Member States, including insular and outermost regions. In addition, Norway and Switzerland are full members of the programme and organisations from these countries are eligible
to participate in projects. Partners from other countries can participate at their own costs.
The deadline for applications is the 31st May 2022, at 12:00 p.m. (midday) CEST (Paris time). Available budget: 130 million €, co-financing rate of either 70% or 80% depending on the legal status of the EU partner.
