Reference documents

The Interreg NWE Programme 2021-2027 has two main reference documents : the Interreg NWE Programme (IP) and the Programme Manual

Programme Manual

The Programme Manual (PM) is a valuable resource and a key reference document for both project applicants and approved projects, guiding them from the application stage all the way to closure. It details the concepts, rules and procedures for projects intending to apply and receive funding from the NWE Programme. It also informs them on the expectations the NWE Programme has of projects during implementation.

A Programme Manual addendum has been elaborated to describe all the specificities related to the application and implementation process of call 3 on small-scale projects.

It replaces some sections and chapters of the Programme Manual - as described on page 1 of the addendum. All other chapters of the Programme Manual remain valid as reference for project implementation and closure.

Interreg Programme (IP)

The final  Interreg Programme (version 24 Aug 2022) is the outcome of discussions among Member States within the North-West Europe Task Force on the Future (NTF) and its dedicated working groups, which have based themselves on the Interreg Regulation for the 2021-2027 period and the SWOT analysis for the future Programme. It also includes inputs from the NWE Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and the feedback submitted to the NWE Programme in a stakeholder consultation. The document was drafted in compliance with Article 17 of the Interreg Regulation for the 2021-2027 period, according to the template annexed to the aforementioned regulation.
