Interreg North-West Europe


Transnational Cooperation and Challenges

I-stay@home has received funding from the European Union in the framework of the Interreg IV Programme for international cooperation as follows:

The INTERREG IVB North West Europe (NWE) Programme is a financial instrument of the European Union’s Cohesion Policy.

The programme invested €355 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) into the economic, environmental, social and territorial future of North West Europe (NWE). The fund was used to co-finance projects that maximize the diversity of NWE’s territorial assets by tackling common challenges through transnational cooperation. To this end, the Programme seeks organisations that are resolute in their ambition to contribute to a cohesive and sustainable territorial development of North West Europe.

In addition to the financial support provided by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the benefits of participating in an NWE project include:
