Cooperation can be complex;
our job is to make it easier.

The Programme also had an Operational Evaluation, and a Case-based Impact Evaluation, as well as a Programme Impact Evaluation, which highlighted the effectiveness work of the programme.

The citizens summaries from 2014-2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 provide a simple explanation of activities in a given year.

The Interact III Programme document defined the programme. It was adopted through an implementing decision, and an accompanying Annex that set out the budget.  The programme's Communication Strategy is also available.

Historic programme information

Interact II (2007-2013)

Interact II supported the Interreg community as well as IPA and ENPI CBC programmes (EU external borders). In order to do so, Interact resorted to harmonised tools (HIT, eMS, KEEP, European Cooperation Day, Interreg branding) and new ways of cooperation such as the recently adopted macro-regional strategies.

Interact I (2002-2006)

Interact I primarily focused on the immediate needs to support the Interreg initiative. It provided support for the implementation of the three strands of Interreg (Cross-border, Transnational and Interregional programmes) to increase efficiency, effectiveness and quality. Unlike the current programme, Interact funded projects to develop local and regional initiatives and contribute to the development of the institutions involved in Interreg.
