Cross Border Programme: Environment Call Open for Objectives 2.1, 2.2 and 2.4

The SEUPB has just opened a funding call for three objectives under the Environment theme of the EU’s INTERREG VA Programme.

  • Objective 2.1 ‘Recovery of protected habitats and priority species’
  • Objective 2.2 ‘Manage marine protected areas and species’
  • Objective 2.4 ‘Improve freshwater quality in cross-border river basins’

This €42million (ERDF) allocated to these three objectives will promote cross-border co-operation to facilitate the recovery of selected protected habitats and priority species; develop cross-border capacity for the monitoring and management of marine protected areas and species and improve freshwater quality in cross-border river basins.

Applications to the call must be received no later than 3pm on Friday 8th January 2016.

A thematic workshop for potential applicants to all three objectives will take place on 27 October 2015 in the Crowne Plaza, Dundalk.  To register please go to Eventbrite.
