Main objectives

The Programme aims at improving cohesion policy through exchange of experience, transfer of good practices and joint initiatives among EU 28 regions (+ Norway and Switzerland) on thematic objectives, such as innovation, SMES, low carbon economy and environmental protection.

Funding priorities

The Programme will focus on four main priorities:

  • Research, technological development and innovation
