The Interreg V EMR programme (2014-2020) aims to remove bottlenecks and practical barriers with a view to enhancing the potential of (and within) the Meuse-Rhine Euregio.

Interreg EMR finances cross-border projects with funds drawn from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). From the regions and from own sources of project partners funds can also be made available. By supporting cross-border cooperation, the programme Interreg Euregio Meuse-Rhine contributes to the quality of life of the Euregio’s four million or so inhabitants.

  • Economy
  • Social inclusion and education
  • Territorial development


The European Union has made 96 million euros available from the ERDF for the Interreg V-A programme in the Meuse-Rhine Euregio (2014-2020). Since projects can draw up to 70% of their budgets from ERDF funding, the programme’s total budget will exceed 140 million euros. It will provide a powerful impetus for investment in the Meuse-Rhine Euregio.
