6 March 2009

The East Border Region INTERREG IIIA Partnership are delighted to launch their ‘Sharing Excellence’ publication which showcases the impressive cross border projects which the EBR INTERREG IIIA Partnership has funded since 2003.

This publication successfully depicts the 38 wide ranging projects which were funded to the tune of €25 million under the following Programme Measurers:-

- 1.1 Business and Economic Development
- The Knowledge Economy
- Human Resource Development and Skilling

You will see from looking through the publication our Partnership through support from the European Union has funded a wide range of Projects from Organisations such as Local Authorities, Community Groups, Chambers of Commerce, Enterprise Agencies/Boards, Education Providers and Private Enterprise. As a result funding has enabled these Organisations to provide services and facilities which have added value and addressed social and economic issues throughout the region.

Chairman of the East Border Region INTERREG IIIA Partnership Cllr Jackie Crowe expressed his delight with the launch of the publication, “It has been both an honour and a privilege for me to serve as Chairman of the East Border Region INTERREG IIIA Partnership and I am delighted with this publication which depicts the success of the cross border projects which our Partnership has funded.

Through the INTERREG IVA Programme we aim to build on the cross border linkages which we have established as a result of the INTERREG IIIA Programme and ensure cross border co-operation is at the forefront of all stakeholders in our Region”.
