The Structural and Cohesion Funds can support the development of cycle infrastructure in eligible regions. Interreg is a programme for regional cooperation that can also offer opportunities to support cycle projects, for example in the framework of cross-border cooperation projects and inter-regional cooperation projects. The Commission also supports cycling through the CIVITAS Initiative.
Through STEER, the transport strand of the Intelligent Energy Europe programme, the Commission co-funded projects that deal with policy audits and development of local cycle policies (for example the BYPAD and SPICYCLES projects), transfer of knowledge and technology (for example the ASTUTE, OBIS, STREAM and PRESTO projects) and campaigns for awareness raising and behavioural change (for example the CONNECT, TRENDY TRAVEL, MIDAS and ADDED VALUE projects). The Intelligent Energy Projects Database provides information on these and other projects.
