How Interreg transforms the Mediterranean region

[Interreg-MED Program]

The Interreg MED is an EU-funded programme which aims to boost transnational cooperation among Mediterranean countries.

Through the use of innovative methods and solutions related to the circular economy, the programme wants to deal with the specific elements of the region and help it cope with rising challenges ranging from a low carbon economy to the protection of natural and cultural resources.
