Stakeholder consultation for Interreg NWE 2021-2027

The Interreg North-West Europe European territorial cooperation programme has launched a stakeholder consultation in preparation for the new programme which will run from 2021 to 2027. All interested public and private organisations are invited to share their feedback on the preselected thematic orientations.

Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) is a European territorial cooperation programme, with the ambition to make the North-West Europe area a key economic player and an attractive place to work and live, with high levels of innovation, sustainability, and cohesion.

In the 2014-2020 budgetary period, a budget of 372 million euros paved the way for the funding of several projects, including the following Brussels projects: Sustainable Housing for Inclusive and Cohesive Cities (SHICC), Facilitating the circulation of reclaimed building elements in Northwestern Europe (FCRBE), Smart Track 4 Waterway and HECTOR (Hydrogen Waste Collection Vehicles in North West Europe).


Designing the new programme for 2021-2027

Interreg North-West Europe is currently in the process of designing a new programme which will run from 2021 to 2027, in line with the five thematic orientations that were preselected by the Member States: smart climate resilience for NWE territories, smart and just energy transition, transition towards a place-based circular economy, fostering innovation capacity in NWE regions, and transition to a socially inclusive, sustainable and resilient society.

All interested public and private organisations – at the European, national, regional, and local level – are invited to give their feedback on the preselected thematic orientations as part of a consultation. The answers will be used to fine tune these priorities and identify as precisely as possible the target audiences for each topic. They will also help to determine the main areas of interest of potential future applicants and people interested in the programme’s results and impact.

The FCRBE project (Facilitating the Circulation of Reclaimed Building Elements), an initiative of the Brussels Rotor collective, promotes the re-use of reclaimed construction materials in Europe.

The Interreg NWE 2021-2027 survey is open until Sunday 28 March. It is available in the four programme languages: German, English, French, and Dutch.
