Interreg Greater Region Programme supports cross-border cooperation projects between local and regional actors from the territories that make up the Greater Region.

Through these cross-border co-operations, the program aims to strengthen the territorial, social and economic cohesion of the large-regional areas by reducing the negative effects of borders.

Support can be provided for both local projects and large-scale projects throughout the Greater Region.

The territory of the Greater Region

The Greater Region is a composite space gathering four member states of the European Union – Luxembourg, France, Germany and Belgium, five regions and three languages ​​(German, French, Luxembourgish).

On an area of 65 401 km2, the Greater Region shelters a population of approximately 11.4 million inhabitants.

The map above shows the cooperation area of ​​the Interreg Greater Region Programme and puts it in the European territorial context.

To find out more about the eligible territory of the program, visit the programme website.

Partner authorities of the program

Eleven partner authorities from the Greater Region have jointly developed the cooperation program and support its implementation:

the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg,
the Wallonia-Brussels Federation,
the German-speaking Community of Belgium,
the Prefecture of the Grand Est Region,
the Grand Est Regional Council,
the County Council of Meurthe-et-Moselle,
the County Council of the Meuse,
the County Council of the Moselle,
the County of Rheinland Pfalz,
the County of Saarland.

140 million euros from ERDF supports cross-border projects

The programme has a budget of approximately EUR 140 million from the ERDF (EUR 139 802 646).

As the projects can be co-financed up to a maximum of 60% by the ERDF, projects with a total budget of EUR 233 million can be supported under the programme.

The thematic priorities of the program

The strategy of the INTERREG V Greater Region program is built around a triptych “employment / territorial development / economy” which places employment support in the large-regional labor market at the heart of the priorities.

Expand the menu above for more details on thematic objectives and priorities.

The first steps of a cross-border project …

Cross-border nature is essential for any project: it is developed and implemented by at least two partner operators from two different Member States in the programming area.

However, a cross-border structure (single beneficiary) can also carry and implement a project alone. Find out more here about the potential beneficiaries of the program.

The “cross-border added value” of the project must be clearly demonstrated and the objectives must be part of the strategy of the cooperation program by contributing significantly to one of the ten objectives of the programme.

For more information on the programme, its funding possibilities and how to submit and implement projects, see the Practical Guide for Program Operators, available for download on the programme website.
