On 2 May 2018, the European Commission adopted a proposal for the next multi-annual financial framework for the period 2021-2027. Simplifying the framework has been identified as a key objective; experience suggests that the current rules are overly complex and fragmented, leading to an unnecessary burden on programme managers and final beneficiaries.
This proposed Regulation lays down rules for the European territorial cooperation goal (Interreg) with a view to fostering cooperation between Member States inside the Union and between Member States and adjacent third countries, partner countries, other territories or overseas countries and territories ('OCTs') respectively.
The Regulation also lays down the provisions necessary to ensure effective programming including on technical assistance, monitoring, evaluation, communication, eligibility, management and control, as well as financial management of Interreg programmes supported by the European Regional Development Fund ('ERDF').
This proposal forms part of a set of proposals setting out the future of regional development and cohesion policy in the European Union for the post-2020 period.
