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.
We have launched a tender for strategic environmental assessment of new Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE. If you are interested in helping us to integrate environmental considerations to our future programme submit your offer by 03 December 2019.
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.

This international information-day event highlights research topics covered within the final 2020 calls for proposals in Societal Challenge 6 Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies of Horizon 2020.
An integral part of the event is the matchmaking, giving participants the opportunity to join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators and to facilitate the setup of Horizon 2020 project consortia. Researchers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders actively looking for project partners, can present their project during a flash presentation session.
The matchmaking session will be preceded by an information session, which will focus on the policy context, funding opportunities and the open call for proposals. This info session will bring valuable insights for your proposal preparation, adding important background information to compliment the bilateral meetings in the afternoon part of the event.Read more

The third edition of Smart Regions Conference will take place between 14-15 November 2019, at the EGG Center in Brussels, Belgium.
Globalisation, new technologies and the transition to a climate neutral, circular economy are radically changing our societies and economies. Tackling these challenges calls for urgent deployment of new solutions and requires profound, systemic transformations. The conference will be an opportunity for 600 practitioners from research, business, civil society and public administration to assess what has already been achieved through national/regional innovation strategies, to exchange experience and reflect on an effective transformation through smart specialisation in the 2021-2027 programming period.“
Come and learn how is Interreg transforming Europe through smart specialisation.
