European Cooperation Day 2018

Painting our future together


European Cooperation Day takes place annually across Europe on 21 September and the surrounding weeks. This initiative started in 2011 and it was a success amongst the territorial cooperation programmes across the EU. The campaign has continued since then, highlighting achievements through territorial cooperation for tens of thousands of people each year. European Cooperation Day improves the visibility and public awareness of Interreg, Interreg IPA CBC and ENI CBC cooperation programmes by highlighting how cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation projects are reducing obstacles and disparities. All the projects funded by the European Union have helped improve people’s lives along the many borders within Europe and beyond.

On average, European Cooperation Day is celebrated by over 50 programmes, with more than 170 local events being organised in 35 to 40 countries each year. 2018 will be the 7th edition of the EC Day campaign.


In commemoration of this occasion, the Territorial Cooperation Unit within the Funds and Programmes Division has published the attached brochure which shows a summary of all the projects selected to date, under the Interreg Europe Programme, the Interreg Mediterranean Programme and the Interreg Italia-Malta Programme.
