Funding for Interreg Europe projects is allocated through calls for project proposals – periods of time during the year when applications can be submitted. Each call has an opening and closing date and outside of these dates it is not possible to apply for funding with a project proposal.
Applications are submitted online through the Interreg Europe online system (iOLF). The system may be available shortly before the call opens, so that applicants can register and start preparing their applications. The ‘Submit application’ button, however, is active only during an open call.
Specific terms of reference are published for each call (see examples below). They can define specific criteria for each call, for example the maximum amount of funding available, the topics open for funding and so on.
