European Regional Development Funds (ERDF)

The ERDF finances programmes in shared responsibility between the European Commission and national and regional authorities in Member States. The Member States' administrations choose which projects to finance and take responsibility for day-to-day management.

A main instrument within the ERDF is  Interreg. It is the Union’s instrument to support cooperation across regions and countries. Interreg provides funding for projects between Member States, their outermost regions, the EU acceding countries and the neighbourhood countries.

In the period from 2021-2027, Interreg will support cross-border mobility, and efforts to develop environmental protection, emergency services, skilled jobs and access to public services for the next EU generation.

Further information on the instrument can be found here and on the various projects can be found here.
