2021-2027: available the Adrion orientation paper

It is available the Adrion orientation paper, a document that sets out the key characteristics of the Adriatic-Ionian area and outlines options and orientations for the programming of future Interreg cross-border interventions in the area.

The paper should be considered alongside the Adrion orientation paper that has been produced by DG Regional and Urban Policy to prepare the future transnational Interreg programme that will be active in the same sea basin.

For the period 2021-2027, the European Commission has sought to promote a more territorial approach to future Interreg programmes, particularly when it comes to cross- border cooperation. In this context, there is compelling evidence to show that cooperation around sea-basins needs to reflect the specific territorial features of these areas and their overwhelmingly maritime dimension.
