Newsletter on the future of four interregional programmes

Posted on 23rd October 2014 | Category: Programme

In the latest issue of the INTERACT newsletter (September 2014) the focus is on the future interregional programmes: ESPON, INTERACT, INTERREG EUROPE and URBACT.

As for the future of these programmes, here is the good news: little is changing! ESPON will continue with research, URBACT with sustainable urban development, Interreg Europe (former INTERREG IVC) will bring European regions together to exchange best practices and capitalise on them and INTERACT will continue to support Interreg programmes throughout their life-cycle.

Below you will find an overview of the articles related to INTERREG IVC and INTERREG EUROPE:

 Interview with Michel Lamblin, Programme Director, INTERREG IVC/EUROPE; Emanuel Moulin, Head of Secretariat, URBACT; Peter Mehlbye, Head of ESPON Coordination Unit and Petra Masácová, Head of the Managing Authority, INTERACT. The four discussed the changes in the structure and mandate of their programmes and what makes them different from the others in the programming period 2014 – 2020.

The INTERREG IVC programme capitalised the results of 204 projects with partners from 30 European regions. Some insides about the success of the initiate and plans to continue it.
