Great ideas know no borders
The overall goal of the Interreg Aurora Programme 2021-2027 is to encourage cross-border collaboration and thereby strengthening the competitiveness, sustainability and attractiveness of the Programme area through social inclusion, digitalisation and green transition.

Sustainable development is an overarching goal in Interreg Aurora. The three dimensions of sustainable development – social, ecological and economic sustainability – will therefore be taken into account as horizontal principles.

The total funding for the Interreg Aurora Programme is approximately 165 million Euro, including EU-funding, Norwegian IR-funding and national co-funding.
