The Northern Netherlands and Europe
The Northern Netherlands Alliance is the managing authority of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and co-executor of the Rural Development Programme (POP3) for the Northern Netherlands. In the 2014-2020 program period, this amounted to a total of €372 million. It goes without saying that these European funds have a large impact on the region.
We aim to optimally represent the interests of Northern Netherlands in Europe and, at the same time, contribute to a strong and cohesive Europe. Fortunately, Europe offers many opportunities to fulfil both these ambitions. Interregional cooperation programs such as Interreg and Horizon2020 bring partners from all over Europe together and offer opportunities for joint projects.
SNN underlines the importance of building strong interregional networks. While missing links in value chains perhaps cannot be found close to home, they might be present somewhere else. Therefore, the Northern Netherlands aspires to match chains beyond borders and to create a multi-regional ecosystem with connected value chains all over Europe.
Interregional cooperation help us shape our goals and objectives. We build networks, learn from other European regions and share our knowledge on regional and European level. A strong Northern Netherlands and a strong Europe – that’s our goal.
