Bodies responsible for Structural Funds programmes

You can find here the lists of the managing authorities and/or intermediate bodies of Investment for Growth and Jobs programmes and European Territorial Cooperation programmes. If policies under these programmes are addressed by a project, we would expect the relevant organisation to be partner. If they are not partners, the relevant organisation must sign the letter of support submitted with the project application.

National events

Details of any events organised in your country are published here. The national point of contact is responsible for the organisation and registration for national events.

National information day on Interreg Europe is an event for potential applicants. It is an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the features of the new interregional cooperation programme. The event also offers inspiring examples of INTERREG IVC projects and their achievements.

First level control information

This section provides information on the system set up for first level control in your country. Any costs associated with this control are indicated so they can be planned for in any project budget.

The system

Cyprus has opted for a decentralised first level control system. The project partners will have to propose an independent internal or external controller to the following body: 

Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development
29 Byron Avenue 1409, Nicosia, Cyprus

Contact person: 

Despina Stavrou
Accountant
Phone: +357 22 602847
Fax: +357 22 666810
Email: dstavrou@treasury.gov.cy

This body will authorise the controller proposed by the project partner after having checked that the controller is sufficiently independent from project activities and finances and qualified to carry out the control of an INTERREG Europe project.

The costs

The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules. 

On-the-spot checks

The first level controllers will carry out on-the-spot-checks for each project partner at least once during the project lifetime.
