About Programme


Aim of the programme is to provide cross-border co-operation in the programme region. European Union allows funding for this programme from two instruments, INTERREG and TACIS.


The main principle of the Programme is co-operation between the area of South-East Finland and the city of St Petersburg, and the Leningrad Oblast. This principle will not be repeated later when the priorities are described; usually only the activity will be defined. However, the supposition is that the activity focuses on this specific area. 
The programme will grant aid to joint development projects following a strategy and priorities which are jointly agreed by the Finnish and Russian partners:
