5 Rationale for Knowledge Management & Capitalisation Frequently Asked Questions! Do we focus on the real needs in our regions or areas? Do we have strong evidence to support the rationale for programme & project development? Can we identify transferable results? Do we know other regions which face similar challenges? On a larger scale, can we make a compelling case for cooperation? INTERACT II Programme

6 Creating a project culture that targets the identification of change and transferable results Allowing regions to have a deep understanding of shared challenges and experiences to date Linking cooperation to other policies and building links to projects under other programmes By taking a European view we can provide convincing statistical evidence on the results of cooperation Demonstrating the benefits of European Territorial Cooperation Identify policy gaps and synergies, providing better guidance for decision- making INTERACT II Programme
