INTERREG IVC programme presented in the Committee of the Regions
INTERREG IVC programme was invited to present programmes’ achievements by the Committee of the Regions to the meeting of Commission for Territorial Cohesion Policy (COTER) which was held on 19 May in Brussels.
Programme director Mr. Michel Lamblin gave an overview on the profile of the programme and achieved results. Members of the committee were positively surprised about the effect the INTERREG IVC programme makes and the high participation of regional and local authorities. 1 400 applications involving 14 000 potential partners, 120 approved projects with 1 300 partners from 29 countries show that there is a high demand for the help and experience that INTERREG IVC offers.
About Committee of the Regions
The Committee of the Regions (CoR) is the political assembly that provides local and regional authorities with a voice at the heart of the European Union.
CoR members live and work day to day in their home regions and continue with their local or regional government responsibilities, whether as regional president, mayor of a major city or county councillor. This keeps them in touch with the views and concerns of the people they represent, and they are then able to bring these to the heart of the EU process when they come to Brussels for meetings of the CoR.
Six distinctive Commissions are responsible to support the preparation of opinions based on the proposals of the European Commission. One of them is Commission for Territorial Cohesion Policy (COTER) which allows for representatives from local and regional authorities to discuss the planning and implementation of regional policy and transport policy.
