The Interreg Sudoe Programme is part of the European territorial cooperation objective known as "Interreg", financed through one of the European Regional Policy Funds: the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The current programming period runs from 2014 to 2020, succeeding two previous generations: Sudoe 2000-2006 and Sudoe 2007-2013.
The Interreg Sudoe Programme supports regional development in south-west Europe by financing transnational projects through the ERDF Fund. Thus, it promotes transnational cooperation to deal with problems common to the regions of this territory, such as low investment in research and development, low competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises and exposure to climate change and environmental risks.
The Interreg Sudoe Programme (abbreviation for Interreg Cooperation Programme V-B South West Europe) was approved by the European Commission on 18 June 2015, with a budget of 141 million euros. The full text is available in Spanish, French, Portuguese and English.
