A new Task Group on Co-Funding has been launched, with the aim to share experiences, debate and influence regional funding policies, instruments and tools that can play an active role in supporting interregional innovation actions and investments. Such investments should be relevant for the Vanguard Initiative’s Pilot Projects and other relevant activities, such as:
In this context, three possible lines of work for the Task group have been outlined:
One of the expected results of this work will be a mapping between funding needs (from the identified activities) with existing instruments and, from there, the identification of funding and financing gaps and the definition of proposals and recommendations for the next MFF, both at European and national/regional level. As such, the Task Group will be contributing to building and strengthening European industrial value chains and deliver on Vanguard members political commitment.
If your region is interested in getting involved in the Task Group or if you would like to receive more information about its activities, please contact José Carlos Caldeira
