PURPLE and Interreg Europe 2021-27

Mar 25, 2022

The PURPLE Working Group continues to follow developments with the new Interreg Europe programme for 2021-27 as the opening of its first call for proposals approaches on April 5 2022. 

Working Group members have continued to deliberate upon possible topic areas with a clear peri-urban dimension upon which there may be opportunities to collabrate across regions from north, south, east and west Europe.

In the run-up to the call's launch and its accompanying public event, members are looking at the possibility of developing viable project ideas based around subjects such as:

  • Peri-urban landscape governance strategies
  • Peri-urban mobility plans
  • Strategies for managing peri-urban land use
  • The role of peri-urban rail systems and services as part of broader regional development strategies

Further ad hoc and more formal meetings are scheduled to take place between now and the first application deadline on May 31 2022. Anyone who is interested in becoming involved in this work is invited to contact Vincent O'Connell at secretarygeneral@purple-eu.org
