The INTERACT Programme provides practical support, training and advice to European Territorial Cooperation programmes on management techniques, financial issues, regulations, communication, strategic orientation and policy development. INTERACT supported the development of the EUSDR and created and managed the EUSDR communication tools until June 2015 when these tasks were transferred to the Danube Strategy Point. INTERACT now supports all macro-regional and sea basin strategies on a horizontal level to encourage sharing experiences and exchanging good practice.

INTERACT is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the EU Member States.
