Driving the transition to a green and resilient region
Cities, towns and Interreg
Stay in touch!
Cities and towns play a vital role in putting solutions developed by transnational projects into practice.
But what’s the real benefit?
From sharing best practices, building on each other’s knowledge to testing new solutions on the ground. Each Interreg project offers a unique chance for cities and towns to work together as if there were no borders. It can be for making the community more resilient, water-smart or climate-neutral. You can start with your own idea, or take over a solution that others have tried out already. This is how EU funding helps cities get greener and smarter. This is how EU funding helps improve the lives of citizens in the Baltic Sea region.
Learn from other cities and towns who are experienced in cooperation in our projects, and open yourself up for new funding opportunities.
