European Cooperation Day

21 September 2021

This year on 21 September, we mark 10th anniversary of the European Cooperation Day. But why do we celebrate cooperation? With the “European Cooperation Day” campaign we would like to remind citizens that many good things come out when we join forces. In the past editions, people cycled together, sang together, ate together, and in general had a wonderful time in each other’s company in hundreds of events organised by EU cooperation programmes in over 30 countries.

This September again, many events are organised in different regions of Europe in order to commemorate the benefits of cooperation.

If you are in Vienna on 18 and 19 September, you can get a taste of cooperation at the street festival ‘Südwind Straßenfest 2021, where our colleagues will tell you more about how partners from central European regions work together to make Europe a better place to live in.

Über Grenzen kooperieren heißt Europa mitgestalten.

Was bedeutet über Grenzen zu kooperieren? Wie können die räumliche und regionale Entwicklung Europas durch Zusammenarbeit mitgestaltet werden? Das Förderinstrumen Interreg ermöglicht es Regionen und Institutionen seit mehr als 30 Jahren mit Partnerorganisationen aus dem Ausland an gemeinsamen Herausforderungen grenzüberschreitend zu arbeiten. Sie leisten damit ihren eigenen Beitrag, um Europa grüner, wettbewerbsfähiger, sozialer und vernetzter zu machen.

An der Schnittstelle der zwei Förderperioden 2014-2020 und 2021-2027 möchten wir mit Ihnen auf die Erfolge und Erfahrungen zurückblicken, die diese Kooperationen hervorgebracht haben. Wir möchten gleichzeitig auch nach vorne blicken, um Ihnen die Kooperationsmöglichkeiten und Themen vorzustellen, die im Rahmen der neuen Programme geplant sind. Die ersten Programmdokumente der neuen Förderperiode wurden mittlerweile bei der Europäischen Kommission eingereicht, die restlichen folgen noch im Laufe des Herbsts. Der letzte Feinschliff zu den Umsetzungsmechanismen wird ebenfalls noch in der zweiten Jahreshälfte stattfinden, um dann mit den ersten Aufrufen zu Projekteinreichungen zu
