Call for Capitalisation Projects focused on Covid-19 recovery


Capitilisation Call Update

The Interreg FCE has launched its call for capitalisation projects focused on Covid-19 recovery. 

The call ‘Covid-19 emergency response - Maximising project impact’ targets current and former FCE projects, as well as organisations from within the programme area. 

Applications must demonstrate successful pilot actions in response to Covid-19, within the 2014-2020 programming period or project results which could be rolled out across the FCE programme area. This could include unforeseen benefits which have emerged during the lifetime of a project, which could benefit from further exploration and support. 

Capitalisation initiatives should also clearly contribute to the programme’s objective of reducing territorial (economic, social and environmental) disparities in the FCE area.
