Hello, my name is Erika. I am an Interreg Reporter at Interreg POCTEFA, in Jaca, Spain.
Interreg POCTEFA stands for “Interreg Program V-A Spain-France-Andorra”. By co-financing projects carried out by French, Spanish, and Andorran socio-economic agents located in the eligible cross-border area, POCTEFA seeks to promote and facilitate cooperation between the three countries. A programmed project can receive a funding of 65% of its total budget.
For the period 2021-2027, the eligible regions are as follows:
The program’s managing authority is the Working Community of the Pyrenees (CTP in Spanish and French) and currently includes 7 members.
My role in the organization is to help the communication manager with diverse communication / collection of information tasks. Some of the things I do are:
– Translating documents
– Contacting projects from the 2014-2020 period to collect their results (to prepare for the event of presentation of POCTEFA projects results that will take place in Bilbao in October of this year)
– Uploading social media and working on the webpage.
As for my life in Jaca, I find the place to be quite charming. Despite being a small town, I like how you can see mountains everywhere. The city is filled with many interesting places to visit, and if you are bored, you can always catch the bus or train to another city.
Here is a picture of me and the Ciudadela (and mountains) behind:
