The Analysis of selected Interreg IV B projects focused on those impacts spanning several topics and going beyond the project duration and the project partners involved. Six Interreg B-specific impacts were identified:
- increased capacity of key stakeholders to act due to greater knowledge and more competences
- stronger joint action in political decision making processes
- better reprensentation of interests at national, regional and European level
- more efficient and effective organisation of work processes
- more frequent use of social and technical innovations
- improved ecological, social and economic (living) environment
The impacts of Interreg B funding differ from those of the regional structural funding programmes, which rather focus on thematic impacts. The specific combination of cross-sectoral and sectoral impacts makes up the special quality of Interreg B. The study stresses the importance to communicate the identified specific Interreg B impacts on all programme levels in the future and to consider them actively while implementing and planning the programmes. Recommendations were formulated addressing both projects and programme management bodies.

Measuring Interreg B Specic Impacts
The paper addresses programme management bodies. The aim is to give impetus for carrying out impact analyses in the context of Interreg B which, apart from sectoral, take cross-sectoral impacts into account. Recommendations for advancing result indicators and proposals of feasible methodical procedures are formulated.
