Launch Scottish consultation on Interreg
The Scottish Government have launched a public consultation on the future European Territorial Cooperation (also known as Interreg) Programmes building on a series of workshops held during the autumn. The consultation is open until the 27 March 2020.
Discussions on the Interreg 2021-2027 programmes have now started with programming committees being set up to which UK and Scottish Government officials are contributing. Discussions are expected to continue throughout 2020.
The Scottish Government is keen to use the consultation to help inform their thinking on the design of the future programmes, so that they can work together with partner countries in the programmes to design something which meets our shared needs.
The Scottish Government is making the case for taking part in the 2021-2027 European Territorial Cooperation programmes, however, to date, the UK Government has still not made a decision as to whether the UK will take part.
