Regional Contact Points

The Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020 covers a large geographical area and each of the participating programme partner countries has a Regional Contact Point (RCP), who is a local source of advice and information on the programme.  

The RCPs work in close cooperation with the Secretariat and have expertise and knowledge on how to develop and manage a transnational project. They also hold programme events throughout the year. This is why it is always worthwhile to consult your RCP in the planning and implementation of your project.

Contact details for each Regional Contact Point can be found below.
