DTP Programming 2021-2027

In the period 2018-2019, the discussions about the future of EU Cohesion Policy 2020 and Interreg started. Many institutions and countries expressed publicly their views on how they see the future and several public consultations were launched to collect expectations towards the post-2020 period.
