Interreg Europe helps regional and local government across Europe to develop and deliver better policy by creating an environment and opportunities for sharing solutions. Their aim is to ensure that government investment, innovation and implementation efforts lead to integrated and sustainable impact for people and place. Any actions developed with financial support from Interreg Europe must fall into one of the four categories:
- Research and innovation
- SMEs competitiveness
- Low-Carbon economy
- Environment and resource efficiency
Interreg Europe’s main support services include (1) interregional cooperation projects and (2) policy learning platforms. The beneficiaries that can be assisted financially by Interreg Europe can be public authorities, managing authorities/ intermediate bodies, and other organizations (such as agencies, research institutes, thematic and non-profit organizations).
