Involved territories

The partnership implementation must demonstrate the project's cross-border nature, which means:

  • involve at least one partner from each side of the Channel, in the area mentioned below,
  • demonstrate a high level of cooperation between partners: joint development, joint implementation, joint personnel, joint funding.

For each project, partners shall appoint a single lead partner to be the project's administrative leader, and shall sign a contract of partnership. The lead partner may be located either in an eligible area or in an adjacent area.
