Our national contact points organised information events to introduce interested stakeholders to our third call for proposals. The events presented the funding framework and the application process to potential applicants, and were complemented by good practices and open question rounds.

Throughout the third call for proposal, applicants are supported by the programme to improve the quality of their project applications. On the transnational level, four thematic workshops took place in Prague on 7 and 8 November 2017. The workshops were organised back-to-back and offered advanced applicants with concrete project ideas a mix of theoretic inputs and thematic discussions.

In the second call training, we have trained more than 100 potential lead applicants in Zagreb on how to apply with us in our second call for project proposals. During the event we made potential lead applicants more familiar with basics of transnational cooperation, our Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE funding priorities and the general procedures of our programme. We presented the framework of the second call and offered hands-on learning experiences on developing a project work plan and budget.

Why should I participate in a transnational Interreg project and how does it work? This was the main question in focus of a joint applicant seminar of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region and CENTRAL EUROPE programmes hosted by the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure and Development in Katowice on 23 February 2016. The event attracted more than 250 interested participants, mostly from Poland.  

The sessions and workshops were targeted at newcomers as well as at those more experienced in transnational cooperation. Mr Adam Hamryszczak, Deputy Minister for Economic Development,  Ms Susanne Scherrer representing Interreg Baltic Sea Region and Mr Luca Ferrarese from Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE invited participants to make use of the opportunities both programmes are offering. Other sessions provided advice on how to develop a project idea, how to become a lead partner and there was enough time for networking.

5 July 2016, Vienna, Austria

The technical meeting for Interreg programmes organised by the INTERACT was set to exchange experiences on the migration-related or other relevant thematic issues. The Conclusions of General Affair Council of 19 November 2015 states that “Interreg programmes, even though operating with a medium and long-term perspective, may support, where necessary and justified, and in complementarity with other appropriate funding streams, to help respond to migration related challenges within the framework of existing programme priorities and agreed intervention logic.”

The Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE also took part in these discussions and we have presented project Re-Turn as a good practice. The Re-Turn looked at the issue of returning migration and how regions of the central Europe benefited from that.
