The Interreg MED Programme is the transnational European Cooperation Programme for the Mediterranean area.The Programme covers an area of  57 regions divided among 10 EU Member States and 3 IPA countries.

Partners from 13 countries including the whole Northern Mediterranean seacoast are working together. The transnational setup allows them to tackle challenges beyond national borders, such as the rise of energy efficiency, protection of natural and cultural resources and strengthening innovation. 

The First call for modular projects proposals was recently launched and will be open until 2nd November 2015.

The major stakes and programme priority axes are:

•Axis 1: Strengthening innovation capacities

•Axis 2: Environmental protection and promotion of a sustainable territorial development

•Axis 3: Improvement of mobility and of territorial accessibility

•Axis 4: Promotion of a polycentric and integrated development of the Med space

Apart from the Modular projects, the Programme includes horizontal projects, which will have the task to promote the modular projects’ communication and capitalisation actions within a joint framework, in order to better highlight the interests of the programme as well as of the transnational projects themselves.

Horizontal projects will not implement and achieve their own territorial objectives but will gather results in progress and facilitate transfer from modular projects to other communities (institutional, scientific and thematic European networks/stakeholders).
