The INTERREG IIIB Northern Periphery Programme was officially closed by the European Commission on 29th August 2011. All project activities stopped by 30th June 2008. The confirmation of the programme's closure can be found here. Please note that all projects funded by the IIIB NPP are expected to keep their project documentation archived until 29th of August 2014.
The Northern Periphery Programme was one of thirteen Interreg IIIB programmes aimed at encouraging and supporting transnational co-operation between the regions of Europe. It provided the opportunity for organisations from the programme area to work together on joint projects concerning common issues and problems.
The Northern Periphery Programme area shares many common features in terms of climate, sparsity of population, natural environment, complicated topography, culture and history. The overall aim of the programme was therefore to encourage joint projects that address the priorities for co-operation shared by the participating countries. Through the exchange of knowledge and experience it was anticipated that some of the barriers to a more balanced development of the area can be overcome.
