he INTERREG IVA 2 Mers Seas Zeeën Programme promotes crossborder cooperation between the coastal regions of 4 Member States: France (Nord-Pas de Calais), England (SW, SE, E), Belgium (Flanders) and The Netherlands (South coastal area).

The 2 Seas crossborder Operational Programme was approved by the European Commission in September 2008 and has a budget of €167 million community funding (ERDF) for the period 2007-2013. The Programme has three priority themes as well as a common priority with the France (Channel) – England INTERREG IVA Programme.

  • Priority 1: Creating an economically competitive, attractive and accessible area
  • Priority 2: Promoting and enhancing a safe and healthy environment
  • Priority 3: Improving quality of life
  • Priority 4: Common priority with the France (Channel) – England programme.

Two types of cooperation projects can be supported within the Programme. These are:

Regular Crossborder Cooperation projects that bring together partners from different countries in the Programme area who wish to develop or solve a shared cross-border issue in line with the objectives of the Programme priorities.

Strategic projects that are approved and identified by the Programme Authorities and seen as essential in achieving the Programme Objectives
