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.
