Interreg Germany - Danmark

The program Interreg Germany-Danmark promotes cross-border cooperation between Germany and Denmark. The current program (2014 - 2020) is the fifth generation of Interreg (Interreg 5A) and unites the two former German-Danish cross-border Interreg regions (Fehmarnbeltregion and Syddanmark-Schleswig-KERN).

Interreg aims at enhancing cross-border collaboration by funding German-Danish projects in four focused subject areas that are essential to the region. The program is funded with 90 mio. € by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Behind Interreg Deutschland-Danmark stand 11 program partners from Denmark and Germany - two Danish regions and nine German districts and cities from Schleswig-Holstein. In total, 3.6 million people are living in the program region. Therefore, it is important that the region is continuously developing and creating opportunities for its citizens.

Interreg fosters the growth of the region in the areas of economics, employment, education, tourism and culture by funding cross-border innovative projects that want to create positive change for the German-Danish cooperation. Like about 70 other Interreg programmes around Europe we believe that through constant development and integration the national border will no longer be a barrier but accomplish mutual enrichment.

INTERREG 2021-2027

During the 2021-2027 programming period, INTERREG continues to support interregional cooperation among regions from all across Europe. 

“To steer the overall process, take formal decisions on the content of the future programme and select our thematic priorities, we have set up a programming committee. The committee is made of delegates from 29 Partner States who take the decisions. An observer from the European Commission as well as the programme's managing authority and joint secretariat take part, but without any decision-making powers. We’ve also hired external experts to help us draft the new programme.”

Partner search via Project search

One of the most effective and promising methods to find partner organisations for an international project is the project search. Using various online search engines, it is possible to search for EU projects that have already been completed, to narrow down their topics and to find out which organisations are involved. In a further search, the individual organisations can be narrowed down via their websites, EPALE, etc., and then finally contacted and inquired about. In this way, professional and experienced project partners can be found, as they have already completed international cooperation projects.
