The border regions in Europe are the connecting links of the European Union. Through collaboration across borders, national borders in Europe will lose significance and get less and less important. The European Union has created a subsidy programme, INTERREG, to support the cross-border cooperation between countries. INTERREG supports cross-border cooperation along the borders of Europe. For the Dutch-German cross-border region there is a budget available with an amount of approximately 440 million euros, for the period 2014-2020. The objectives that will be reached with these resources, are described in the programme INTERREG Germany-Netherlands.
The main objectives of the programme are to increase the innovative capacity of the border region and to remove the obstacles caused by the border.
A natural person or a legal entity, organisation or a company can file a project application. Exclusively projects where Dutch and German partners are working together will be funded. The funding of the projects always consists of a personal contribution of the partners, EU-grant funding and often national and regional grant funding (e.g. ministries and provinces).
Do you have a project idea or a specific question about the Interreg program Germany-Netherlands?
