The partnerships will roll out promising project outputs and results of already funded Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects at the regional and local level, or improve policy making. 

Project ideas have to build on complementing results and outputs from at least 3 different projects co-financed by Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE and directly-managed EU programmes such as Horizon 2020, LIFE, Connecting Europe Facility, etc. 
At least two of the projects have to be Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects.


We are looking for a mix of Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE stakeholders and newcomers from projects funded under directly-managed EU programmes. We believe that cooperation beyond our Interreg community will be central to make results of our currently funded Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects even more effective. Additional partners from other Interreg projects, projects funded by mainstreaming programmes as well as complete newcomers are welcome. 

For more detailed information, please read the application manual.

Project ideas

As a member of our Interreg CE Community you can browse through project ideas that will be published in the application phase.  You can also post your own project ideas directly from your member profile and search for new partners.

Crossfertilisation and project idea development workshops

2-3 April 2019

The aim of our upcoming workshops is twofold:  We want to encourage further coordination and better sustainability of outputs and results of our approved projects through crossfertilisation as we believe that this can lead to increased cooperation and coordination in our central Europe community. And we want to support applicants in developing ideas and matchmaking for our upcoming experimental call. 

 As a result of the workshops, participants will have:

  • Gained knowledge about results and outputs of other Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects
  • Gained knowledge about the objective and procedures of the experimental fourth call
  • Started discussions about outputs & results to be taken up and utilised 

The workshops are targeted exclusively at beneficiaries of approved Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects. Due to capacity reasons, participation is limited to a maximum of 4 participants per project of the first two calls and to lead partners of third call projects.

We expect you to present the project you represent in short pitch and in a poster visualising your 2-3 most promising project outputs and results. Read more on how to prepare


Horizon 2020 Info Day on the 4th call of Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE

7 May 2019

In the upcoming experimental call for proposals, Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will support the roll out and uptake of project outputs and results in coordination with directly managed EU programmes such as Horizon 2020. 

The Horizon 2020 Info Day will offer an opportunity for lead applicants to present their initial project ideas to potential partners from the FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes.  It is going to be organised by the European Commission's DG RTD.

As a result of the Horizon 2020 Info Day, central European research stakeholders will have:

  • Gained knowledge about the objective and procedures of the experimental fourth call
  • Gained knowledge about project ideas building on results and outputs of approved Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects
  • Started initial discussions about participating in a project proposal

At the same time, the Horizon 2020 Info Day will allow potential lead applicants to:

  • Present their project ideas and existing project results
  • Express their needs in terms of missing partners and results
  • Start discussions with potentially interested FP7/Horizon 2020 organisations

Registration will open in April.


Partner search

The partner search and matchmaking events is  complemented by digital measures. 

The main tool is our online project idea community. This will be complemented by our LinkedIn group for partner search, which was established in 2016 and has nearly 1000 members. Information on the call will be published here and applicants can publish project ideas and exchange at any given time.




Our applicant training has completely shifted to digital. Video tutorials will be published regularly on our YouTube channel.

The programme website is the place where to find comprehensive information on the call. FAQs will be continuously updated. 

Information on how to develop an application will be available when you need it the most.                               




Our digital approach is complemented by individual support on the national and transnational level.

The network of National Contact Points provides support in national languages on primarily national application issues. 

The compulsory individual consultations (as phone or video conferences) can be booked from 8 April to 28 June.
