Interregional cooperation

Interregional cooperation is aimed at enhancing EU regional development through transfers of know-how and exchanges of experiences between regions.

The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG EUROPE forms part of the European Territorial Cooperation goal under cohesion policy for 2014-20. The programme aims to improve the effectiveness of regional development policies and contribute to economic modernisation and increased competitiveness in Europe.

It provides a framework for cooperation between regional and local actors in the EU-28, as well as in Norway and Switzerland.

Programmes are part-financed by the ERDF under the interregional cooperation strand of the European Territorial Cooperation goal:

INTERACT - support for, and exchange of, good practice between authorities in charge of implementing cooperation programmes

ESPON - territorial planning observatory

URBACT - creation of, and support for, city networks and urban development
