Hauts-de-France Region

With its proximity to many of the European capitals (Paris, London, Brussels) the Hauts-de-France Region is at the centre of European affairs. For 20 years Hauts-de-France Region has benefitted from European Union support that has helped develop the regional territory, its cooperation policy with other European regions as well as initiatives to strengthen European citizenship.

Hauts-de-France Region has also strenghtened its European engagement by managing European funding (ESF, EDRF) and INTERREG cooperation programmes for the 2007-2013 period and by creating a European Institute for territorial cooperation.
