Interreg IVC Programme Results
 
Over the past seven years, the INTERREG IVC programme has enabled public institutions all over Europe to ‘learn through cooperation’ by means of 204 interregional projects aimed at improving regional policies. Various examples of how a region or a city has built on the experiences of their counterparts so as to enhance their own policy and delivery strategies are now available for review.
 
In order to maximise the results ensuing from such projects, the INTERREG IVC programme has commissioned a team of thematic experts to analyse, benchmark, and capitalise on the wealth of knowledge generated by projects working on similar regional development issues.  In this regard, twelve policy themes, ranging from innovation to the environment, have been addressed by means of this exercise.  The respective results are available on the INTERREGIVC online library (http://www.interreg4c.eu/policy-sharing-policy-learning/library/ ) whereby one may access information in the fields of innovation systems, innovation capacity of SMEs, eco-innovation, creative industries, entrepreneurship, e-government services,  demographic change, rural development, climate change, energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable transport. These documents offer a detailed insight into the knowledge gathered by the projects as well as tailor-made recommendations for policymakers and practitioners at all levels i.e. regional, national and European.  A video, which outlines the benefits of such cooperation is also available through the following link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb2R4cHzNAo.

Launch of the Public Consultation Process in connection with the INTERREG EUROPE PROGRAMME

 
Under the 2014-2020 programming period,  the Territorial Cooperation Unit within the Funds and Programmes Division (FPD) at the Ministry for European Affairs and Implementation of the Electoral Manifesto (MEAIM) shall be coordinating Malta’s participation in four European Territorial Cooperation Programmes.  One of these Programmes is the INTERREG EUROPE Programme, which is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and which aims at supporting policy development so as to improve the performance of policies across Europe. To this end, public and public equivalent entities from the whole territory of the European Union (EU) as well as Norway and Switzerland are encouraged to exchange practices and ideas in a number of thematic areas being addressed by the Programme in caption, with the aim of  improving the respective strategies and policies.
 
In 2013, the representatives of the above mentioned countries were involved in the drafting of the documentation pertaining to the INTERREG EUROPE Programme, which has a budget of €359 million (ERDF) for the 2014-2020 period.  Prior to finalising such documents and submitting them to the European Commission for approval and endorsement, the general public and  interested stakeholders are being invited to provide their feedback, specifically with regard to the Programme’s  Cooperation Programme and the  Strategic Environmental Assessment Report.
 
As stakeholders and potential partners, your participation in this consultation process, which closes on the 21st of March 2014, is strongly encouraged. An online questionnaire has been prepared to gather feedback on the draft Cooperation Programme.  All relevant programme documents as well as the link to the questionnaire can be found at http://www.interreg4c.eu/interreg-europe/public-consultation/
