NORTE 2020

NORTE 2020 (2014–2020 Norte Portugal Regional Operational Programme) is a financial instrument intended to support regional development Portugal Norte Region, which is part of the PORTUGAL 2020 Partnership Agreement and of the current cycle of structural funds provided by the European Union. Under the management of the Norte Portugal Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR-N), NORTE 2020 stands as an important contribution to the regional development strategy, based on a dual path of convergence with the European and national averages. Given the paradigm of the European cohesion policy, which channels most of the funds to less competitive regions, the allocation for NORTE 2020, of 3.4 billion euros, is the most relevant among regional operational programmes.
