NWE making an impact (2014-2020)

The Interreg NWE Programme is committed to deliver tangible results that contribute to improving the economic, environmental, social and territorial development of the North-West Europe region.

Our 2014-2020 projects helped solving common challenges and brought benefits to the citizens of regions and cities across the area. The Programme has not only been supporting projects for those to achieve their expected impact, but has also been dedicating strong efforts to identifying best practices and showcasing successful results.

In this section you can find the main facts and figures of the highlight topics addressed by the Programme and discover how Interreg NWE projects are making a difference on the ground.
