Interreg Europe is the Interregional European Territorial Cooperation programme (Interreg C), which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Interreg Europe helps regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy. By creating an environment and opportunities for sharing solutions, the Programme aims to ensure that government investment, innovation and implementation efforts all lead to integrated and sustainable impact for people and place.
The Programme co-finances projects which allow regional and local public authorities and other players of regional relevance across Europe to exchange practices and ideas on the way public policies work and thereby find solutions to improve their strategies for their own citizens. In addition to regular projects, policy-learning platforms are also co-funded.
The Programme has four Priorities under which projects operate:
- Research & Innovation
- SME Competitiveness
- Low Carbon Economy
- Environment & Resource Efficiency
The Southern Regional Assembly is a Contact Point for the S&E region, represents the Irish Member State on the Programme’s Monitoring Committee and is the designated First Level Controller for all payment claims submitted by partners located in the S&E region.
