The European Council invited European Commission, in co-operation with the Member States, to elaborate an EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) by mid-2015. Close to 400 contributions from citizens, organisations and public authorities were received through public consultations.

INTERREG Europe

In the INTERREG EUROPE cooperation programme, partners from 30 countries – 28 member states of the European Union, Norway and Switzerland – will be able to exchange their experience and work on improving their Structural Funds and regional development policies.

Two major points are relevant for interregional cooperation:
· The regulation defines two major ‘goals’ for ERDF: Jobs & Growth and European Territorial Cooperation. As the second goal, ETC will also have its own regulation to better reflect the specific multi-country nature of cooperation.
· Interregional cooperation will continue to exist to “reinforce the effectiveness of cohesion policy”.
