Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) has launched a consultation seeking input into redesigning the future programme, which will run from 2021 to 2027. All interested stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback through an online survey. This includes stakeholders at EU, national, regional, and local levels, as well as the general public.
The feedback received from the consultation will help design the next programming period for Interreg NWE. The responses will be used to fine-tune suggested themes and identify the target audiences for each topic. A preliminary list of five priorities and nine specific objectives have been outlined so far, and can be seen on this page. However, these are only indicative at this stage and may evolve in the coming months. During the 2014-2020 programming period, Interreg NWE addressed smart and sustainable growth through the themes of innovation, low carbon, and efficiency in resources and materials.
The future Interreg NWE programme will be composed of six participating countries – Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
EU policy closer to citizens:
The EU is committed to listening more closely to citizens. This consultation will help in this endeavor by allowing for meaningful, transparent, accountable and effective policy-making.
The overarching objective of European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) – of which the Interreg family of programmes is a part – is to promote a harmonious economic, social and territorial development of the European Union as a whole.
