Fund description:

The France-Channel-England (FCE) Interreg Programme still has €50m available for new projects in the current 2014-2020 programme.

Interreg provides EU funding for projects which encourage co-operation and sharing of good practice between European regions: the FCE Interreg Programme covers the counties of southern/eastern England and the regions of northern France which border the English Channel.

Funding is available for joint initiatives, developed collaboratively between English and French partners. Under the Withdrawal Agreement, UK organisations can continue to bid for new grant funding and projects can continue with activities right the way into 2023.

The FCE programme is looking for projects that aim to bring about improvements in one of the following areas: innovation, social innovation, low carbon technologies, natural and cultural heritage, or coastal and transitional water ecosystems.

Gabrielle Bogart is the FCE programme facilitator for the South West of England and can help you develop your project and guide you through the application process, including helping you to find project partners in the UK and in France.

Existing Interreg projects can also continue as planned until the end of the current programme.
