Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE encourages regional cooperation among nine central European countries: Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia, as well as parts of Germany and Italy. The overall objective of the programme is “to cooperate beyond borders to make central European cities and regions better places to live and work”. We aim to do so by implementing smart solutions that answer to regional challenges in the fields of innovation, low-carbon economy, environment, culture and transport. The total programme budget for projects will be around 231 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

First call

On 12 February 2015, the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme has opened the first call for proposals. Around 80 million Euros of co-financing are available for public and private organisations that want to cooperate on innovation, low-carbon, natural and cultural resources or transport. The first call is organised in a competitive two-step procedure. 620 applications were received in the first step of the call. Following the qualitative assessment, the programme member states jointly decided on 22 September 2015 to invite 91 proposals to submit full applications in step 2 of the call. The second call for proposals will open soon after the funding decision in April 2016.
