The Interreg V-A Cooperation Programme Greece – Bulgaria 2014-2020 is a cross-border cooperation programme co-financed by the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund.
The Programme aims at promoting cross border cooperation by bringing together the different actors of the cross border area, in order to strengthen the development of the region and its transformation into a centre for sustainable development.
The total budget (ERDF and national contribution) for the Cross-border Cooperation Programme Greece-Bulgaria 2014-2020 is €129.695.572,00. The total financing consists of €110.241.234,00 (85%) ERDF funding and €19.454.338,00 (15%) national contribution.
The Programme intends to promote the harmonious, balanced and sustainable development of the cross border area, while reducing the economic and social territorial disparities which have arisen in counties and regions lagging behind, and speeding-up their economic and social restructuring. In continuation to the above, the proposed projects in the framework of this Call will include the achievement of significant goals and must, at the same time, safeguard the maturity prerequisites of the proposed interventions, with the higher aim of covering the commitments for the N+3 rules for the first years of the Programme.
Please note that this Call for proposals is subject to the signing of the Ministerial Decision on Management and Control System (for Greek beneficiaries).
