Today, Nermin Dizdarević officially starts as the new Coordinator of the Interreg Meuse-Rhine (NL-BE-DE) programme. Emile Roemer, the Governor of the Province of Limburg, appointed him as the head of the EU funding programme.
A Catalyst for Cross-Border Collaboration in the Meuse-Rhine Region
The Interreg Meuse-Rhine (NL-BE-DE) programme fosters collaboration among partners across national borders to realize ambitious and innovative projects. The Province of Limburg spearheads the programme as the managing authority on behalf of the participating partner regions in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany
EU-Funding of €125 million
The European Commission recently granted its approval for the new programme, which will run from 2021 to 2027. With an impressive budget of €125 million in European subsidies, this funding presents an invaluable opportunity to drive exceptional cross-border projects in the Meuse-Rhine border region.
Collaborative decision-making with the Belgian, German, and Dutch partners will undoubtedly shape the success of these investments. The programme partners see Nermin as the ideal candidate to do so.
EU topics are the common thread in Nermin’s career: In 2014, he started working at the Province of Limburg as Interreg programme manager. Since 2019, he coordinated, among other things, the European Regional Development funds for the Province. In the past year, he was acting (deputy) cluster manager for the Cluster Economy and Innovation. Before joining the Province of Limburg, he worked at the Dutch embassies in Vienna and Bern and for Stadsregio Parkstad Limburg. He lives with Esther and their sons Finn and Jesse in Heerlen.
