European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Cohesion Fund

This webpage covers the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Cohesion Fund strictly as part of funding projects related to tourism.

Why is it relevant to tourism?

EU cohesion policy has traditionally been an ally of European regions in their efforts to add value to geographical assets and the cultural and historical heritage. This is particularly true of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)  under its European Territorial Cooperation strand (Interreg). This programme helps support tourism in an efficient and sustainable manner and strengthen  economic, social and territorial cohesion in the European Union.
