RASLRES is one of several programmes funded by the Northern Periphery Programme. The NPP is one of thirteen Interreg IIIB programmes set up to encourage and support transnational cooperation between NPP programme areas in Europe. Northern Periphery Programme areas share many common features in terms of climate, sparsity of population, natural environment, complicated topography, culture and history.

The programme’s aim is to encourage joint projects that can tackle priorities shared by the participating countries. Organisations from the NPP area are given the opportunity to work together on joint projects concerning common issues and problems. Through the exchange of knowledge and experience, it is anticipated that some of the barriers to a more balanced development of the area can be overcome.
