First projects kicking off their activities

On 6-7 June, more than 150 representatives of our 14 approved call 1 projects met in Lille with the Interreg NWE Joint Secretariat and Contact Points to exchange on the requirements for project implementation. The key topics discussed were project management, communication, monitoring and reporting. 

Next to the inputs from the Joint Secretariat and lively Q&A sessions with project partners, the meeting was also a good occasion for project representatives to network and exchange experience.

The signing of subsidy contracts between the Interreg North-West Europe Managing Authority Région Hauts-de-France and the respective project lead partners is ongoing and projects are ready for a flying start.

More information on the first 14 Interreg NWE projects of the 2021-2027 programming period will soon be available on individual project webpages, within the NWE website.
