Horizon Europe Programme: Opportunities for the Outermost Regions
EU’s outermost regions can benefit from many new opportunities for support under EU policies to help them shape, implement and fund their tailored regional development strategies. The permanent constrains faced by outermost regions and their specificities is recognised in Article 349 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which provides for specific measures to support the outermost regions, including specific provisions applicable to outermost regions in EU competitive programmes. In its renewed Strategy for the EU’s outermost regions, the European Commission committed to support their capacity to participate in EU competitive programmes. In this context, the European Commission is organising a series of 7 virtual workshops to provide tailored information on the opportunities and specific provisions for the outermost regions under various EU programmes .
The Horizon Europe programme will be presented to EU outermost regions in an online workshop taking place on 16 November 2023 from 14:00 to 17:00 CET.
