We value the environment and culture in CENTRAL EUROPE

The environment and culture priority responds to the need for protecting and sustainably using natural and cultural heritage and resources, which are subject to increasing environmental and economic pressures as well as usage conflicts. Heritage and resources also constitute valuable assets of central European regions and represent important location factors benefiting regional development. Furthermore, the focus is on improving the quality of the environment in functional urban areas. To this aim, key challenges like land use conflicts, air, soil and water pollution or waste management will be addressed by the projects funded under this priority.

Environment and culture PROJECTS

After two calls for proposals, we are funding 33 transnational cooperation projects on environment and culture topics. With around 64 million Euro ERDF co-financing, partners from all over central Europe will address shared regional challenges in the field of natural and cultural resources.
