European Territorial Cooperation

The INTERREG VI programme running from 2021 to 2027 focuses on 4 overarching policy objectives:

  • a greener, CO2-free Europe;
  • a more social Europe;
  • a Europe closer to its citizens;
  • a better governance.

As in the previous INTERREG V programme generation, regional cooperation will be continued in three strands:

  • at the cross-border level as strand A;
  • at the transnational level as strand B;
  • and as INTERREG Europe as part of interregional cooperation.
