The Interact  Programme is facilitating a network of transnational Interreg programmes dedicated to supporting the EU macro-regional strategies (MRS). The network  is composed of Interreg transnational programmes’ Managing Authorities/Joint Secretariats and Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO). The network serves primarily as a platform for exchanging experiences and practices in providing support to the MRS implementation; furthermore, it provides opportunities for discussing and developing suggestions for improved support to the MRS.

Considering the current and future role of the Interreg transnational programmes in supporting the MRS as well as ongoing negotiation process on the 2021-2027 EU budget, INTERACT invites chairpersons of National Coordinators groups for the MRS and Monitoring Committees of the transnational Interreg programmes to a meeting in November 2018. The meeting is  of informal character providing the representatives of the relevant stakeholders’ groups (National Coordinators and Monitoring Committees groups) with a collection of good practices and ideas that would contribute to the formal negotiation and programming processes. Participation is upon invitation.

Interreg Baltic Sea Region funding has been decisive in making the macro-regional strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) work. Therefore, the current and future chair of the Programme’s Monitoring Committee and Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat contribute to the discussion with their expertise.
