TAKING

COOPERATION

FORWARD

Question:

What is meant by joining forces and coordination?

Answer:

Successful project proposals in the fourth call have to go beyond a mere combination of various outputs and results.

They have to further develop, improve and adapt existing outputs and results by making use of experiences of more than one project. They have to put together knowledge, to increase outreach, visibility and political attention or to improve existing networks,. They should address the limiting factors for effective exploitation of good outputs and results. Above all, they have to demonstrate how their project will create synergies and add value beyond what was already achieved.

The fourth call offers the opportunity to exploit Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE outputs and results and those delivered by projects funded under other EU programmes. The focus here is on programmes directly managed by the European Commission (e.g. FP7/Horizon 2020, LIFE, Connecting Europe Facility, Creative Europe, …).
