Funding for Interreg Europe projects was allocated through four open calls for project proposals – periods of time during the year when applications could be submitted - and one call for additional activities restricted to previously approved projects. Each call had an opening and closing date and outside of these dates it was not possible to apply for funding with a project proposal.
Applications were submitted online through the Interreg Europe online system (iOLF). The system was available shortly before the call opened, so that applicants could register and start preparing their applications. The ‘Submit application’ button, however, was active only during an open call.
Specific terms of reference were published for each call. They defined specific criteria for each call, for example the maximum amount of funding available, the topics opened for funding and so on.
Interreg Europe held five open calls for project proposals: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2021 - see details below.
