Many of the economically strongest and most innovative European regions are situated in North-West Europe (NWE). Industrialisation and growth have left their marks on the environment, people and regions. The Interreg North-West Europe Programme is therefore a green programme that supports regions in pursuing a sustainable path and promoting a smart and just transition for all NWE areas.

North-West Europe covers Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, parts of France and Germany. There are great regional disparities between Paris and the Palatinate, the Ruhr and Brittany. The Programme aims at making all regions in North-West Europe more resilient by increasing their ability to respond to any existing and future challenge. Its above-average growth compared to the EU is both strong and challenging: in view of the high energy and resource consumption and social and demographic realities, the focus is on the ecological and digital transformation, which creates prospects for all regions and people.
The North-West Europe Programme supports projects concerning the following five priorities:
Climate and environment
Innovation and resilience
In North-West Europe, at least three partners from at least three different countries (two of which are based in the Programme area) come together in one project. A lead partner assumes the overall control of a project.
The Programme addresses public and private stakeholders. Examples of partners eligible for funding under the North-West Europe Programme:
