Interreg Europe has launched its fourth call for proposals for projects, which will be open until 22 June 2018. The call is open to interregional cooperation projects that target the promotion of sustainable multi-modal urban mobility and relevant adaptation measures. Interreg Europe will co-finance up to 85% of project activities depending on the legal status of the project partner(s) involved.
The aim of Interreg Europe is to help regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy. To achieve this goal, Interreg Europe offers opportunities for regional and local public authorities across Europe to share ideas and experience on public policy in practice, therefore improving strategies for their citizens and communities.
Interregional cooperation projects are open to partnerships of public authorities and other public bodies, research institutes and non-profit organisations from all EU Member States as well as Norway.
Partners from at least three different countries have to come together on a shared regional policy issue by exchanging their experiences and practices in order to integrate the lessons learnt from this cooperation into their policies. In order to to reinforce the focus on results and give the learning process a better chance of leading towards tangible results, an interregional cooperation project is designed in two phases:
• ‘Phase 1’ is dedicated to interregional learning and to preparing the exploitation of the lessons learnt from the cooperation through the development of action plans.
• ‘Phase 2’ is dedicated to monitoring the implementation of each action plan. When relevant, pilot actions may also be tested during this phase.
Since the launch of the Interreg Europe programme, at least 22 of the approved projects address transport and low carbon mobility. These projects have brought together partners from more than 100 organisations, spread across virtually all Member States.
Those interested in submitting a project proposal in the fourth call can submit your application via the online system iOLF, accessible through the Interreg Europe website (see below).
For those that have a burning question on any aspect of the call, the Interreg joint secretariat organises online information sessions on Friday 8 June and 15 June from 10 to 11 am CET, where policy and finance officers from the joint secretariat will answer questions on the application pack, application process, budget considerations, partnership, etc.
