International Projects

An important part of regional development responsibilities is planning the national policies as well as the EU structural and cohesion policies and coordinating their implementation in the Kainuu region. This includes participation in taking and implementing financing decisions concerning national and EU projects. One of the ways for the Regional Council of Kainuu to implement the regional programme is also by preparing and implementing own projects related to the organisations’ tasks and the focus points of the regional strategy. The organisation may also subcontract such activities, co-finance projects and/ or act as a partner in projects.

International regional development policy initiatives are an important instrument for Kainuu. The Regional Council of Kainuu, as the institution responsible for the regional development programme, the innovation strategy and as Structural Funds Intermediate Body, is involved in the initiation, planning, monitoring and looks forward to the implementation of interregional (Interreg Europe-IE), transnational (Interreg B strand), and cross border initiatives.

There are several experienced project organisations in Kainuu that have a long track record of international projects. The Regional Council of Kainuu regularly supports international projects related to the goals of the Regional Programme. 

Below you'll find the international projects we are involved in at the moment. The office of the Regional Council of Kainuu has participated numerous projects over the years. These have been gathered into the following document.
