Work together for better solutions

Delve deeper into four projects' stories. What did they achieve? How did they do it? Where did their inspiration come from?

Regional policies made more efficient

Our projects have been very active. By June 2022, they:

  • Held close to 13,500 policy learning events;
  • Identified more than 4,900 good practices;
  • Increased the professional capacity of over 16,800 people engaged with them thanks to their activities;
  • And developed 1,158 action plans for their regions.

Policy learning activities bring results

So far, our projects have influenced over 880 policy instruments, including 483 Structural Funds operational programmes.

We estimate that the financial impact of this influence is 1,295 MEUR in total (1,076 MEUR from Structural Funds). That’s much more than our own budget (359 MEUR). This funding has been allocated in the regions to finance activities inspired by the projects' exchange of experience.

These results also show that Interreg Europe directly contributes to a more efficient implementation of the Cohesion Policy. Why? Because investment in solutions tried and tested in other corners of Europe saves time of regional policymakers. It makes the use of the financial resources available in their regions more efficient.
