INTERREG North West Europe (NWE) is a transnational European Territorial Cooperation (Interreg B) programme which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The Programme fosters transnational cooperation to make North-West Europe a key economic player and an attractive place to work and live, with high levels of innovation, sustainability, and cohesion.
It supports cooperation across borders in eight North West European countries, Ireland, UK, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, part of France, Germany, and the Netherlands. Projects must involve partners from at least 3 different countries and apply a joint approach to tackle common issues. The aim is to reduce the disparities among regions and raise the overall level of performance across the whole area.
The ERDF allocation for the 2014-20 Programme is €396m with a grant rate of up to 60%, all of which has been committed. The Programme currently funds 83 transnational projects.
The 2014-20 programming period focused on three thematic priorities
