Covid Aid for Socio-economic resilience

Aid fund against Covid-19

During 2020, the Euroregion Pyrenees Mediterranean launched the transversal and exceptional call for a COVID support fund, whose resolution benefits 32 innovative projects with a total funding of €700,000.

Through this Fund, Carole Delga, President of the Euroregion and the Région Occitanie and its partners Francina Armengol, President of the Government of the Balearic Islands, and Pere Aragonés, Vice-President of the Government of Catalonia, expressed their desire to mentor and support the socioeconomic actors and citizens of the Euroregional territory with the aim of mitigating the effects of the health crisis and boosting the economy throughout the region.

The results of the deliberation are available at Euroregion > Documentation > Deliberations
