PRESERVE is co-financed by the INTERREG IVC programme which is part of the European Territorial Cooperation Objective. It is the EU Programme that helps regions of Europe to share their knowledge and experience and provides a platform for the exchange and transfer of good practices. Two main priorities are targeted: ‘Innovation and Knowledge economy’ and ‘Environment and Risk prevention’. These priorities reflect the strategy of the EU to encourage growth and jobs in line with the Lisbon and Gothenburg Strategies.
