Collaborative projects focusing on development, knowledge and research

The Interreg Europe programme supports governments in improving regional development policies, instruments and programmes. By exchanging ideas and experiences, authorities in all 27 EU countries, Switzerland and Norway can jointly develop new policy instruments. The Interreg Europe programme is primarily for public organisations, but private parties and NGOs can also participate as partners in a project.
The second call for projects is expected to open from 15 March 2023 to 9 June 2023.
Budget and grant contribution Interreg Europe 2021–2027
There is a total budget of € 379 million available for the period 2021–2027. It is expected that over 80% of this budget will go to projects that contribute to the objective of a greener, smarter and more social Europe.

- A greener, more decarbonised and more resilient Europe;
