In 2018, the Interreg MED PANORAMED governance project launched a series of experiments, together with six institutional partners from Mediterranean countries, aiming at the integration of results of thematic Interreg MED projects in policies at regional, national or European level. Managed by the Region SUD Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, this experimentation is focusing on the implementation of transnational cooperation projects' outcomes in public policies, activity which is known as "mainstreaming".
In November 2019, the first phase of the experiment began by setting up an action plan, the connection between projects' beneficiaries and public authorities, and by starting out the operational phase of the results transfer. A synthesis of a mainstreaming evaluation report has been published, highlighting key findings and the first recommendations for other projects' beneficiaries who want to develop "mainstreaming" activities.
In April 2020, a new version of the mainstreaming report and recommendations has been approved and published with an update of the monitoring of the 6 ongoing experimentations in September 2020.
