Completion of the European project POCTEFA HFCF
The project 'making the border a path to training' (HFCF) is a European project with the participation of INEFC Catalonia, the municipality of La Seu d'Urgell, the EMD of Bescaran, the 7 commons of Andorra and the common of Auzat (France), which was part of the POCTEFA program within the European Union ERDF funds. The objective of the project has been the creation of a tourist-sports road that has united the transboundary territories involved under the name of “Camino del Reencuentro”. This tourism and sports product is linked to different sports, training and exchange activities that have been carried out throughout its development. Itik Consulting has collaborated with INEFC Catalonia in the course of this project performing technical and administrative advice according to the needs of the different phases of the project.
After the completion of the 2007-2013 POCTEFA program set of projects, a new 2014-2020 POCTEFA call will be launched this year. This program will have 189.5 million Euros for cross-border projects in different territories of Spain, France and Andorra.
The strategic axes of work for the new projects for this call that will open shortly are: revitalization of innovation and competitiveness, promote adaptation to climate change and risk prevention and management, promote protection, enhancement, and responsible use of local resources, favor the mobility of goods and people and strengthen the competences and values of the territories.
