My IVY experience at the Interreg Italy-France Maritime Programme

Since 3 months, I have been volunteering as an IVY Reporter for the Interreg Italy-France Maritime Programme  in Florence and I am very satisfied and enthusiastic about the experience.

Interreg Italy-France Maritime is a cross-border Programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), under the European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) objective of the EU Cohesion Policy 2021 – 2027.

The main objective of the Programme is to contribute to strengthening the economic and social cohesion of the cross-border area by reinforcing sustainable growth, resilience, connectivity, social inclusion and institutional and social cooperation in the European and Mediterranean context.

Moreover, the Programme pursues its commitment to support cooperation between the territories of two Member States: France (Corsica and the French departments of the Alpes-Maritimes and Var) and Italy (Tuscany,Liguria and Sardinia).

Furthermore, the interventions of the Italy-France Maritime Programme directly affect almost 7.5 million citizens living in the cooperation area. However, the Programme’s objectives are far-reaching and long-term.

The actors who can participate in the Programme’s resources are numerous. With five different intervention priorities, Interreg Italy-France Maritime addresses a vast and articulated system of potential beneficiaries, such as: research centers, universities, associations, trade unions, public authorities, small and medium-sized enterprises, transport companies, port authorities, employment services, training organisations, etc…

Currently, I am actively involved in supporting the programme through communication activities, helping to promote the objectives and results of the programme at national and european level. In addition, I actively participate in meetings and territorials events, where I have the opportunity to learn more about the Interreg Programme initiatives and projects. This direct involvement enables me to fully understand the complexity and importance of European territorial cooperation.
