EUROPEAN COMMISSION HAS ADOPTED THE INTERREG AURORA PROGRAMME

The Interreg Aurora Programme has, as one of the first cohesion policy Programmes in Europe, been adopted by the Commission on 31 May 2022.

Interreg Aurora Programme Director Iiris Mäntyranta was very happy to announce the awaited news on the first historical meeting with the new Interreg Aurora Monitoring Committee. Iiris says “the Programme offers great opportunities and enables new and exciting cross-border cooperation in the northernmost parts of Europe and Sápmi.”

Great ideas know no borders

The overall goal of the Interreg Aurora Programme 2021-2027 is to encourage cross-border collaboration and thereby strengthening the competitiveness, sustainability and attractiveness of the Programme area through social inclusion, digitalisation and green transition.

The Interreg Aurora Programme will support cross-border projects with around 157 million Euros including EU-funding, Norwegian IR-funding and national co-funding. The first call for project proposals will be launched the 21 June 2022.
