This document is the final report of the ex post evaluation of programmes aiming at promoting European Territorial Cooperation (ETC), widely known as Interreg, during the period 2007-2013.

This evaluation was commissioned by the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy, and is part of a set of 14 thematic evaluations contributing to an overall ex post evaluation of the Cohesion Policy Programmes for 2007-2013.

The overall aim of the evaluation is to assess the results of Interreg programmes. It has a specific focus on co-operation in the fields of research, technology and innovation; environmental protection and enhancement; and capacity-building. It also aims at assessing the results of knowledge transfer across regions from Interreg IV C, and at assessing the contributions of the programmes to the Jobs and Growth agenda.

The evaluation covers Interreg Programmes implemented over the period 2007-2013, in all geographical zones.
