The Euroregion Pyrénées-Méditerranée was founded on October 2004. It is a cooperative political project involving the regions of Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées.
The aim of the project is to create a sustainable development cluster in the northwestern Mediterranean region based on innovation and the social and economic integration of the territory. As such, the Euroregion shall contribute to the construction of a united, solidarity-based Europe attuned to the concerns and experiences of its citizens.
The Euroregion is a space committed to fostering and defending projects essential to achieving balanced, sustainable development, on the European scale. It develops mainly projects to generate employment and cultural, educational and climate projects.
In 2014, the Euroregion won the Award of the Committee of the Regions, the European Commission and the European Parliament, which distinguishes it as the best European Territorial Cooperation Structure of the year.
