Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE has supported transnational cooperation in central Europe for more than 20 years.
Our funding helps regions and cities to become stronger and more resilient without reinventing the wheel.
We are building trust beyond borders and connect people to work together on
innovation, low carbon topics, natural and cultural heritage as well as transport and mobility.
Now the time has come to take our cooperation forward. January 2021 marked the beginning of a new cycle for European funding. Learn more about the new programme strategy from the latest version of the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme 2021-27 (version, June 2021), which is expected to be officially approved by the European Commission by the end of 2021.

FIRST FIVE MEETINGS OF THE WORKING GROUP
In September and October we carried out a survey among selected national thematic experts to collect inputs for the future programme strategy. The aim was to find out, in which thematic fields our partners perceive the highest needs for transnational cooperation to meet future challenges.
At the EU Week of Regions and Cities 2019, we hosted a participatory session, in which practitioners and policy makers shared their views and ideas on the future orientation of our programme. Inputs collected informed the territorial analysis.

In November we invited selected national thematic experts to discuss national strategic preferences and build consensus on future policy choices. We also used the workshop to collect initial inputs regarding potential topics, actions and target audiences.
