Governmental bodies

We collaborate at different levels with many governmental organs in Europe. They can be described as any authority exercising or entitled to exercise  administrative, advisory, executive, judicial, legislative, or regulatory power.

Int Logo Large


This is a EU body that develops territorial cooperation across national borders. The aim is to encourage cities and regions from different Member States to work together and learn from each other through joint programs, projects and networks. The Interreg programs are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

In cooperation with several other European organisations our national coeliac societies in central Europe have accomplished to create a free online course program for both coeliacs and professionals. This was made possible by support and funding from Interreg.
