Cooperation Programmes 2014-2020 for the German-Polish border areas – final consultation

In the programming period 2014-2020, INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT (IU) developed the German-Polish cooperation programmes INTERREG V A on behalf of the responsible ministries of the federal states Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Brandenburg. These programmes in context of the objective “European Territorial Cooperation” of the development fund for regional development (EFRE) were submitted to the European Commission in December 2014.

Currently, the final consultations with the European Commission are held. These consultations are led by the administrative authorities for the cooperation programmes: The "Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Bau und Tourismus Mecklenburg-Vorpommern" for the programme area Germany/Mecklenburg-Vorpommern/Brandenburg–Poland and the "Ministerium der Justiz und für Europa und Verbraucherschutz des" of the federal state Brandenburg for the programme area Germany/Brandenburg-Poland. Both are supported by IU.

The approval of the programmes by the Commission is expected in summer 2015.

Contact persons of IU for the programme development are Dr. Jürgen Neumüller and Christian Gering.
