What is the PEACEPLUS Programme?

PEACEPLUS is a new €1.14bn funding programme designed to support peace and prosperity across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland, building upon the work of the previous PEACE and INTERREG Programmes. The design reflects the importance of peace-building activity, but also the importance of actions that will contribute positively to the economy, building prosperity and adjusting to the new environment and challenges we face.

It is due to be launched in the next few months, and you can read more about it in the newly-updated PEACEPLUS Programme overview can be found here. 

The Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) is responsible for managing PEACEPLUS and is working on the content and timing of the funding calls across the six key themes of the Programme.

Last month, the European Commission formally adopted the €1.1 billion Programme which represents a strong partnership between the EU, the Governments of the United Kingdom and Ireland and the Northern Ireland Executive, all of whom have supported and approved its development. The next step is the finalisation and ratification of the arrangements between the United Kingdom and the European Commission, which is anticipated in the Autumn, and will see the launch of the Programme and funding calls opened.

In preparation for that SEUPB are holding pre-application workshop events to provide more information and assistance to potential applicants and you can find out more about the venues, dates, details and the order in which these are taking place by following us on social media. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
