Territorial Cooperation Programmes
European Territorial Cooperation Programmes (ETC) are a key tool for strengthening the territorial cooperation both in the European context and with third countries and constitute one of the main options for the programming period 2014-2020.T
he European territorial cooperation at the level of the European Union member states is implemented through cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation programmes. These programmes are either bilateral or multilateral.
The bilateral ETC programmes aim to tackle common challenges that border regions face, to exploit growth potential and of course to strengthen cooperation in the interests of the harmonious progress of the Union. The bilateral ETC programmes between Greece and neighboring countries in which LLLC MEK SA participated are:
Interreg V-A "Greece - Bulgaria 2014-2020" Programme
Interreg IPA CBC "Greece - Republic of North Macedonia 2014-2020" Programme
