The rules for the Interreg Meuse-Rhine (NL-BE-DE) programme's first call for proposals have been published last week! That's excellent news for those who want to secure funding for a cross-border project in the Meuse-Rhine region: It means that they can now submit their applications in the electronic system, JEMS. The document is available in the download section and provides essential information on how to apply for funding in Call 1 and what criteria must be met.
The Interreg Meuse-Rhine (NL-BE-DE) programme aims to support projects that focus on industrial transition, green transformation, healthier citizens, tourism in a high-quality region, and cross-border cooperation (live and work without borders). For projects in these fields, the programme explicitly encourages partnerships between public authorities, non-profit organisations, and private companies across the region.
The project proposal must demonstrate the added value of cross-border cooperation, and priority is given to projects that have the potential to benefit more than one country.
The detailed subsidy rules provide essential information on how to apply for funding, meet the programme's criteria, and what expenses are eligible for reimbursement. With this information, project partners can further prepare their proposals and hopefully secure funding for their projects, contributing to the development and strengthening of the Meuse-Rhine region.
