If you have not applied in our first call for proposals, there will be another chance coming soon.
Central Europe is facing numerous challenges that know no borders. Climate change, social pressures and the need to transition to a carbon-free and digital economy have only accelerated lately. Regions and cities have to adapt in many ways and they urgently need financial support for this. Commission President Ursula von der Leyen emphasised this in her State of the Union Address on 14 September, when she exclaimed: “Let’s get the money on the ground”.
On the same day, the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE monitoring committee agreed that the programme will soon offer fresh funding on a broad basis. The second call for proposals will be launched in March 2023 and make available a considerable share of the programme budget for classic transnational cooperation projects. These projects are expected to develop, test and implement innovative solutions that meet the needs of regions and cities on the ground. As a consequence, the originally planned and financially limited call for smaller pioneer projects will be postponed.
