We are an EU cohesion policy programme that encourages cooperation beyond borders. With a budget of 246m EUR we support public and private organisations to work together across central Europe. Jointly they improve cities and regions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Our experimental call closed on 5 July. We received 24 applications that will now undergo administrative checks and a quality assessment. Selected proposals will be supported by around 10 million Euro ERDF as of early 2020.
EU Regions week
On 9 October, we will host a participatory session at the EURegionsWeek. With this session we want to initiate a public debate on the future shape of our next programme. Join us and share your ideas with us?
Our last call opened on 4 March and closed on 5 July 2019. We received 24 proposals for projects that want to capitalise on outputs and results of already funded projects.
With this final call we aim to encourage closer coordination with partners from directly-managed EU funding instruments such as Horizon 2020 or LIFE.

This year's location of Graz marks something of a CIVITAS homecoming - the very first Forum took place there in 2003. Yet mobility moves fast. The reality in Graz now is vastly different to 16 years ago, like in many cities across Europe. But how and why have things changed in this time? What role has the CIVITAS play in this? What must be done to ensure a continued transition towards sustainable, safe and connected mobility?
To examine these crucial questions, the CIVITAS Forum 2019 has chosen to go 'back to the future' and look at the interplay between new technology and classic mobility solutions in the present day.
Join us at the Interreg stand and learn more about how are our projects better connecting CENTRAL EUROPE and how they contribute to the more sustainable mobility in our cities.Register now

The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is an annual Brussels-based event in which officials from public administrations, as well as experts and academics, exchange good practices and know-how in the field of regional and urban development.
We believe that #cooperationiscentral to make regions and cities more attractive and we will be part of the #EURegionsWeek! Transnational cooperation already contributes to a stronger and more resilient Europe. But how can it get even closer to the needs of citizens?
In the joint transnational Interreg Idea lab workshop on Thursday, we will have a look at the impact of Interreg and specifically on what role the transnational cooperation can play to take regions forward in three topics: entrepreneurship, energy efficiency and risk management. We will feature examples of Interreg cooperation projects presented in the summer edition of the Panorama Magazine (page 10-18) and invite all the stakeholders to round table discussion to shape future of cooperation in the pre-selected topics.
