About Programme


The Lithuania, Poland and Kaliningrad Region of Russian Federation Neighbourhood Programme is designated for collaboration of NUTS III border administration level territories in 2004-2006. It is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and TACIS.


INTERREG, the EU Structural Funds facility for financing cross-border co-operation, is a multi-annual framework programme for co-operation between public authorities, firms and associations in border regions as defined in the Structural Funds Regulation. Its aim is to stimulate local and regional economic development through co-operation and better communications, thereby removing barriers to integration and mutual understanding.


The Commission Communication “Paving the Way for a New Neighbourhood Instrument” of 1 July 2003, introduced the concept of “Neighbourhood Programmes” for the external borders of the enlarged Union for 2004-2006.  This has an immediate impact on the countries which are involved in this INTERREG programme.


This programme will complement the general EU- Russia bilateral relation focusing on the border regions on both sides of the borders.


Co-operation area


The Programme territory covers Klaipėda, Tauragė, Alytus and Marijampolė regions (21 local governments) in Lithuania, Pomorskie (słupski, gdański and Gdańsk-Gdynia-Sopot subregions), Warmińsko-Mazurskie (elbląski, olsztyński and ełcki subregions) and Podlaskie (białostocko-suwalski and łomżyński subregions) voivodeships in Poland, as well as the entire Kaliningrad Region of Russian Federation.

The overall area of the regions taking part in the Programme is 97.284 km2 and the population is 6.730.000.
