Regions for Economic Change

Exchanging good practice between Europe’s regions

On 8 November 2006 a new initiative called “Regions for Economic Change" was adopted by the European Commission under the Territorial Cooperation objective for the 2007-2013 programming period. It aims to link the exchange of good practices developed in the interregional cooperation (Part of the C strand of the ETC (as well as of the former Interreg III Community Initiative), its aim is to promote exchange and transfer of knowledge and best ...) and urban development network programmes to their dissemination and implementation into the Convergence, Regional Competitiveness and Employment and European Territorial Cooperation (This is the EU Regional policy’s third pillar of the programming period 2007-2013 and succeeds the Interreg III Community Initiative. With the present programming ...) operational programmes.

To achieve these objectives, Regions for Economic Change will work on the following elements:

So far, eight INTERREG IVC Capitalisation projects (Capitalisation Projects are interregional cooperation projects which focus specifically on the transfer of regional development good practices into mainstream EU ...) have been earmarked for additional assistance and thus contribute to the Regions for Economic Change (On 8 November 2006 the European Commission adopted a new initiative for the 2007-2013 programming period under the Territorial Cooperation objective called 'Regions ...) initiative. Details on these approved operations are available in the project database
