European Territorial Cooperation and Financial Mechanisms Division
European Territorial Cooperation or ‘Interreg’ programmes that are co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund aim to strengthen cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation in various areas, both within and beyond EU borders. In the funding period 2014-2020, Slovenia participates in four cross-border programmes, i.e. Slovenia-Austria, Slovenia-Hungary, Slovenia-Croatia and Italy-Slovenia, and in five transnational programmes (Alpine Space, Central Europe, Mediterranean, Danube and ADRION).
The objective of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism and the EEA Financial Mechanism is to reduce economic and social disparities and strengthen bilateral relations between the Donor States (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and the Beneficiary States. Two programmes supported by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism and the EEA Financial Mechanism are implemented in Slovenia in the funding period 2014-2021, namely Education – Enhancing Human Capital and Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation. The funding from the Norwegian Financial Mechanism and the EEA Financial Mechanism is also channelled through the Fund for Bilateral Relations.
