Opportunity to access 'strategic' Interreg NWE funding: Brussels, 16 & 17 November

Project development meetings to bring forward applications based on 6 topics especially designated by the programme authorities ('strategic initiatives') will be organised by INTERREG IVB North West Europe in November. The intention is to identify a ''critical mass'' of relevant actors from across the programme area who are clearly interested in developing ambitions into firm project proposals with the programme’s assistance. The themes chosen partly reflect gaps in the areas addressed by the programme's approved projects to date and represent a rare opportunity to access an inside track towards EU funding.

The project ideas to be discussed are:
16th November:
1. North West Europe Renewable ''Energy Agency'' - NWE network of centres
2. Biomass Energy Development
3. Energy from Algae/Bio-solar-safe: tapping energy from green cells
17th November:
4. Economic cluster development across North West Europe
5. North West Europe network of centres co-operating on innovation and technology transfer
6. Freight telematics and logistics chains management (including transnational corridors)
