WHAT IS Interreg Euro-Med?

The Interreg Euro-MED Programme supports cooperation across Mediterranean borders. We provide funds for projects developed and managed by public administrations, universities, private and civil society organisations.

The Programme brings together partners from 69 regions of 14 countries from the Northern shore of the Mediterranean with a common objective: a climate neutral and resilient society for the benefit of its citizens.

For the next seven yeartogether with our partners we will work to make the region smarter, greener and improve the governance between its stakeholders.

The total programme budget amounts to about 294M€ for the 2021-2027 period.

Our missions

The Interreg Euro-MED Programme funds projects willing to bring solutions to answer 4 complementary missions. These missions will help us find concrete and shared solutions to global challenges. They pull together various thematic issues and initiatives to reach goals that single projects could not otherwise.

To improve the quality of human life and ensure a sustainable growth in the region, we have put the environment at the heart of each mission.

Strengthening an innovative sustainable economy

Improving innovation capacities in our Mediterranean territories is a necessity to strengthen and consolidate a knowledge society. It will help us face future possible economic crisis. Projects under this mission will increase the capacities of public and private organisations to implement and coordinate Regional Innovation Strategies and reinforce the competitiveness of SMEs accelerating the transition to a circular and sustainable economy.


Protecting, restoring and valorising the natural environment and heritage

Nature contributes to a healthier and more resilient society. The preservation of ecosystems allows to mitigate natural disaster, diseases, boost resilience and regulate climate, thus reducing risks to human societies. Projects under this mission will promote climate change mitigation and adaptation measures and encourage the sustainable management of natural resources and restoration of degraded ecosystems.

Promoting green living areas

Sustainable development, management of living areas and an integrated vision of the territory energy transition are crucial to the quality of life of Mediterranean citizens. Projects will tackle this challenge through the development of greener living areas, and will work to minimise their impact on the Mediterranean and the global climate system focusing on air pollution, energy and mobility

Enhancing sustainable tourism

Tourism is a key sector in our territories, both in terms of protection and valorisation of the natural and cultural resources and support of its recovery. Projects will address the development of sustainable tourism as a transversal issue: fostering tourism integrated in circular economy, considering the sustainability of ecosystem services using innovation technologies, or promoting the preservation of natural resources and cultural heritage.
