Interreg Europe: statement on Brexit

Interreg Europe Programme published a statement on the UK referendum:

“To the followers and promoters of interregional cooperation, we are saddened to see that the majority of the UK has voted to leave the European Union.

UK partners are numerous and appreciated in interregional cooperation projects: UK contributed the third highest number of partners in INTERREG IVC, and are similarly active in Interreg Europe applications.

The next steps are uncertain until the UK and the EU have negotiated a position which will then be discussed within the Interreg Europe monitoring committee.

This process will take some time and current Interreg Europe project partners from the UK should continue implementing their activities.”
