Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020

The Northern Periphery and Arctic 2014-2020 forms a cooperation between 9 programme partner countries. The NPA 2014-2020 is part of Interreg, supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and ERDF equivalent funding from non EU 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.
