Cross-fertilisation 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 cross-fertilisation 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 at all beneficiaries of approved Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects. Due to capacity reasons, participation will be limited to a maximum of 3 participants per project of the first two calls and to lead partners of third call projects.

Registration will open in the coming weeks.

Discover with us exciting novel views on Industrial Culture and experience an authentic place!


We are looking forward to welcoming you on 4/4/19 in the region Zwickau: engine of industrial production in Saxony, beating heart of industrial culture and central venue for the Saxon Exhibition Industry-Culture-People 2020.

Since 2016, industrial regions outside the metropolises are engaging with their culture in the EU project InduCult2.0. Now, at the end of the project, we can state: This culture is specific, multi-layered and highly suitable as a carrier of regional identity and image. 

Such an industrial culture ties in with the industrial heritage, but goes far beyond it: It is as much the result of the productive present and even provides space for discussion of the industrial future to be shaped. We have coined the term Living Industrial Culture for this.

In the past two and a half years, eight Central European partner regions have conceived and implemented a wide range of innovative measures to test this approach in practice. The results are promising; they are currently being evaluated by two scientific partner institutions.

At the end of the project, we would like to share the main findings of this cooperation experts from Central Europe. 

We present a manifold agenda with exciting, both practical and strategic contributions, workshops and forums.

The conference will be simultaneously translated into English and German.

Towards integrated environmental land management in Central Europe

MaGICLandscapes project presentation at LUMAT Project Final Conference

Modern cities, especially in Central Europe, face many challenges such as urban sprawl, soil sealing, brownfields or the necessity of protection of natural  spontaneous species occurring on degraded areas. Additionally the cities’  administration borders do not reflect physical, social, environmental or cultural links in cities. Therefore functional urban areas (FUA) are created which constitute spatially continuous settlement systems made up of separate administrative units, containing urban compact area with surroundings functionally connected with the urban core.

The final conference of LUMAT will focus on presenting and assessment of the project results. It will be also an opportunity for discussion on the present issues in land management with looking at the land as an environmental resource. On the conference MaGICLandscapes as further Central Europe project envisaging opportunities to enhance the green infrastructure resource in urban and rural areas is giving a presentation on the outputs so far. Thank you for invitation!

EU Green Week

13-17 May 2019

Environmental laws have a huge impact on our life. They improve water and air quality, they protect nature, and they encourage recycling and waste management. But to really make an appreciable difference, these EU laws have to be properly implemented.

The next edition of EU Green Week 2019 will put this process of environmental implementation into the spotlight. We'll be asking questions like – do these laws really matter, and what the added benefits are for citizens? What does successful implementation look like? Why do "implementation gaps" exist? How can we move from knowing that stakeholders need to take ownership of these laws to actually making it happen? And most importantly, how can the EU facilitate the process, making sure that citizens' voices are heard?  

EU Green Week 2019 will include events across Europe, with the official opening event on 13 May in one of the Member States and a high-level summit in Brussels from 15 to 17 May. The opening event will have a particular prominence, setting the tone for the Week's debates. The closing of Green Week will take place at the end of the Brussels Conference and will showcase the political conclusions from the Week.

The call for proposals for Partner Events is now online.
