We have reached an important milestone in the preparation of the next edition of the Interreg Europe programme. On 23 June 2021, our programming committee approved the final version of the cooperation programme 2021-2027.

After some editing and adding the correct references to the just-published EU regulations, we'll make the final text available in this folder. We'll announce it on our website too. So, stay tuned!

The final version includes updates from the public consultation. More than 550 respondents contributed. You can have a look at the summary of the comments and how they were treated with respect to the final programme draft. You can find all the comments from the public consultation, their analysis and results here. The individual documents are also available in the folder with all 2021-2027 programming documents.

On the basis of this final version, representatives of our 29 Partner States will launch a signature process of their partnership agreements with Interreg Europe. The programming process will end with the submission of the cooperation programme to the European Commission for final approval. We expect the new programme to come into effect in early 2022.

Before we get our new programme approved, we will be preparing documents such as the programme manual with more detail about our new programme. On 24 and 25 November 2021, we will present the new programme at 'Europe, let's cooperate!' online event. Save the date!
