INTERREG IVA Programme - New Call for Applications

19 January 2012

The Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) has issued a call for applications across all themes of the INTERREG IVA Programme.   

The overall aim of the INTERREG IVA programme is to support strategic cross border co-operation for a more prosperous and sustainable region.   

Given the current economic crisis and the need for the INTERREG IVA programme to respond to current challenges, applications are only sought from those organisations that can demonstrate that a project will contribute to one or both of the following: 

  • More efficient delivery of public services
  • Clear and measurable economic impact  

In an effort to improve the quality of applications and the processing time for projects, the SEUPB is proposing a new two stage approach for this call.  This two stage approach will seek to provide greater project development support to potential applicants at both stages of the process.  

Applicants are invited to clearly indentify a problem in the cross border territory and demonstrate that this is best addressed through the INTERREG IVA programme.  Applicants are advised to refer to the ‘Impact Assessment Toolkit for Cross Border Cooperation’ in preparing their applications.  This toolkit has been developed by the Centre for Cross Border Studies, as part of an INTERREG IVA funded project and is intended to be a practical guide to assist with planning cross border projects. 

For a copy of the 'Impact Assessment Toolkit' please refer to the SEUPB website
