France (Channel) England Interreg Micro-project scheme
Mon 24 April 2017, 10:30 – 12:00 BST
What is the France (Channel) England Programme?
A European Territorial Cooperation Programme is an economic development programme that funds various projects which take place across multiple countries and regions. These projects aim to find common solutions to common problems which exist in multiple countries.
The France (Channel) England Programme is a “Cross Border” programme under the European Territorial Cooperation Goal, meaning it aims to support the development of the Border region between France and England.
Why participate in the France (Channel) England Programme?
The programme provides funding to project partnerships to support them in gaining the full benefits of working on a cross-border basis. The benefits of working across borders include;
Working together to develop one solution to a common problem.
Working together to learn from each other’s experiences and expertise, giving organisations a wider area to search for solutions to their problems.
Opening up new audiences for ideas and products, and new markets for SMEs to break into using the experience gained from Cross Border working
Reducing the costs normally associated with gaining this type of experience and opportunity, meaning it is a great chance for those looking for new opportunities and challenges.
Earlier this year we launched a new funding opportunity called Micro Projects, which is aimed at encouraging smaller organisations to take part in cross-border projects.
The aim of this event is to present the specifics of this scheme:
- 80% cofinancing rate
- eligible organisations
- 500 k max budget
Two facilitators from the France (Channel) England Programme will be there to explain how to apply, the different timelines and to talk about the project ideas from the audience.
This event is hosted by Plymouth City Council.
If you require a specific slot to discuss your project idea can you contact prior to the event firstname.lastname@example.org
