Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak provides support for joint Scandinavian projects developing society. Our areas of support are innovation, low-carbon economy, transport and employment.

Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak adresses the most important cross-border challenges linked to the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy in this dynamic cross-border region, which includes the metropolitan regions of Copenhagen-Malmö, Gothenburg and Olso as well as rural areas.


The programme will contribute to a strengthened cross-border research and innovation system capacity, linking it more strongly to the EU and international systems. This includes the European Spallation Source (ESS) and the Swedish research facility MAX IV. Increased commercialisation of innovations and increased business participation in the R&I system are main objectives.

Low-carbon economy

The ÖKS programme will also invest in green growth by increased production and use of renewable energy, by improving and extending distribution networks, by promoting innovation in renewable energy and by decreasing energy consumption in the public sector.


In the area of connectivity, the programme will support connecting transport corridors with the TEN-T network, mainly by complementing planned TEN-T projects. The connection between central and peripheral parts of the programme area will also be improved.


Finally, the programme will facilitate employment and cross-border cooperation in micro enterprises, own businesses and new enterprises. It will also increase cross-border mobility through activities aiming at overcoming legal and other border obstacles and supporting qualifications assessment.
