Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020

The Northern Periphery and Arctic 2014-2020 forms a cooperation between 9 programme partner countries.

Despite geographical differences, the large programme area shares a number of joint challenges and opportunities that can best be overcome and realised by transnational cooperation.
