The Interreg MED Programme HORIZONTAL PROJECTS
Horizontal projects will support the module application procedure cooperating with both the programme and individual projects, concentrating and developing information and deliverables per each priority axis from an external point of view. Horizontal projects will not have to implement and achieve their own territorial objectives but to gather results and facilitate transfer from modular projects to other communities (i.e. other ETC or thematic programmes, European commission, member States, thematic and/or institutional networks…). The lack of a common facilitator of synergies, exchanging and sharing between individual projects prevented from fully profiting from the overall impact of the results achieved during the 2007-2013 programming period. Horizontal projects, under the monitoring of the programme Authorities will have the task to promote the modular projects (concept referring to all thematic module-based projects from the Axis 1, 2 and 3) communication and capitalization actions within a joint framework, in order to better highlight the interests of the programme as well as of the transnational projects themselves.
The horizontal project will be the unifying element of the main outputs/ results of each modular project on a particular and shared subject. This will allow real synergies between projects in the same axis / objective of the Interreg MED Programme
