Regional and Cohesion Funds
The European Commission's Regional Policy supports programmes which may offer funding opportunities for Motorways of the Sea initiatives. To find out more:
Go to the Regional Policy website, and click on the tab "In your country". Choose in the box "Select a country" your country of interest and click "OK". Select "all regions" and click "OK".
Then go through the following steps:
1. Choose from the list of available programmes the ones which may be relevant to Motorways of the Sea. These could include: national operational programmes for transport, strictly regional programmes, or programmes for cross-border, interregional or transnational cooperation.
2. Find out from the programme description whether the activities/investments of your interest are covered by the priorities described in the programme and verify the budget allocated to these priorities.
3. In case there is a match between your interests and the programme priorities and budget, contact the managing authority indicated in the programme to find out about funding opportunities.
