The Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) Programme is one of the fifteen transnational cooperation programmes, financed by the European Union. These programmes encourage public, scientific, private and civil society organizations to cooperate with a view to improving the economic, environmental, territorial and social development of Europe’s regions. The programme co-finances these organizations to work together in transnational projects on specific themes that can deliver concrete results for the North-West Europe area and its citizens.
To tackle such challenges, projects ideas need to respect the following main features:
- Stimulate transnational cooperation between the above mentioned stakeholders to develop new or improved links and synergies, especially for emerging sectors and growth sectors in the NEW region (according to smart specialization strategies in Member States);
- Develop and implement new technologies, products and services in order to create an impact on societal and environmental problems and challenges.
- Close the gap in terms of innovation performance between regions in the NEW area by spreading knowledge and know-how from innovation leaders to innovation followers or moderate innovators;
- Connect regional clusters at a transnational level in order to create a critical mass for R&D and innovation, skills, funding, cross-fertilization of ideas and entrepreneurial initiatives.
