INTERREG is not the only instrument for regions to finance interregional cooperation in the EU. Regional Operational Programmes can also allow for interregional cooperation via Article 37.6.b of the current General regulation. As this funding opportunity is often ill-known by regional authorities, the AER joined forces with INTERACT to organise an information session on 26 March 2013, which brought together 25 participants from 20 regions and 14 countries. Ms Amparo Montan, from the INTERACT Information Point of Valencia, Mr Michel Lamblin, Director of the INTERREG IVC Joint Technical Secretariat and the Limousin Region representatives explained how to use Article 37.6.b, presented the changes likely to occur in the next programming period, brought forward a comparison between INTERREG and the article 37.6.b and showcased the experience of the Limousin region (F), as one of the pioneers using article 37.6.b.
