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 cities and regions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
In a recent operational evaluation, external experts assessed the effectiveness and efficiency of the programme management system. They concluded that the programme is managed smoothly and well on track with planned activities and set targets.
The assessment of our call has entered a crucial stage following initial administrative checks: 23 applications comply and often go well beyond our minimum requirement to coordinate with projects from directly-managed EU programmes like Horizon 2020.
Our last call opened on 4 March and closed on 5 July 2019. We received 24 proposals for projects that want to capitalise on outputs and results of already funded projects.
With this final call we aim to encourage closer coordination with partners from directly-managed EU funding instruments such as Horizon 2020 or LIFE.
