Newsletter INTERACT - Autumn 2013
Closure of the Programming Period 2007-2013
The programme life cycle 2007-2013 is coming to its end and closure considerations have made their way into the agenda of European Territorial Cooperation (ETC).
The European Commission Closure Guidance, published in early 2013, was naturally a trigger which made the forthcoming closure process more tangible and concrete. Due to the nature of ETC programmes, there is a broad set of specific challenges for ETC closure.
This closure edition is published well before the official submission deadline of the closure package and the timing reflects the need for early preparations. INTERACT closure-related services will continue in the form of European Union-wide and regional workshops, advisories, practical guidance and discussion on ETC specific aspects.
