Over the last few months we’ve travelled to both sides of the Channel to meet some of the people doing great things with our funding. And we’ve created a brand new video showcasing how our funding could help make a real difference to your project idea.


The best bit is that we still have over €100 million available for new cross-border projects until 2020.

Meet the people behind the projects:
