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.
Our projects GreenerSites, UGB, LOW CARB, TOGETHER and FocusInCD are competing for the REGIOSTARS 2019. You can help them to win the public choice award by voting for them on the REGIOSTARS website before 9 July 2019.
Are you planning to submit a project proposal in our capitalisation and coordination call? Then remember to book your compulsory individual consultation before 28 June to get the advise on the relevance of your project idea.
Our current call opened on 4 March and will close on 5 July 2019. This call for transnational project proposals aims to capitalise on outputs and results of already funded projects.
Moreover, it encourages closer coordination with partners from other directly-managed EU funding instruments such as Horizon 2020 or LIFE.

The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is an annual Brussels-based event in which officials from regional and urban administrations, as well as experts and academics, exchange good practices and know-how in the field of regional and urban development.
#cooperationiscentral for European regions and cities
We believe that #cooperationiscentral to make regions and cities more attractive and we will be part of the #EURegionsWeek! Our Idea Lab workshops will be discussing cooperation achievements and challenging the debate on the future Interreg cooperation in our programme area as well as on the broader European scale.
This year, the European regions, cities and their stakeholders are asking themselves about what kind of cooperation and in which areas is needed. We, at CENTRAL EUROPE have asked experts to analyse territorial challenges, needs and potentials of transnational cooperation in this functional area. In our Idea lab session, practitioners and policy makers will share their views and ideas on future orientation of the programme.
Stay tuned for the agenda and more details at the EURegionsWeek website.
