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 their cities and regions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Our third call for project proposals closed on 25 January. All submitted applications will undergo administrative and thematic quality checks before the assessment starts. New projects will be funded as of early 2019 with around 60 million Euro from the ERDF.
Discussions about the future of cohesion policy have begun. Have your say and contribute to the European Commission consultation before 8 March. You can help to secure a future for transnational cooperation in central Europe.
We fund project ideas that go beyond borders to make central European cities and regions stronger and more competitive. We are looking for transnational project ideas related to urban and regional innovation, CO2 reduction, natural and cultural resources or transport. We are already funding 85 partnerships with a total of 160 million Euro ERDF.
