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 their cities and regions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Future of Cohesion
The European Commission proposed to reduce EU Cohesion Policy funding by around 7% in 2021-27. The policy should be modernised to ensure that it can still deliver with less and even serve new priorities such as support to structural reform and integration of migrants.
Update on third call
127 project applications that were submitted to the third call for proposals will be fully assessed by the end of 2018. This was decided by programme Member States in their meeting in Vienna on 24 April following a relevance check of eligible applications.
We fund project ideas that go beyond borders to make central European cities and regions stronger and more competitive. We are looking for transnational project ideas related to urban and regional innovation, CO2 reduction, natural and cultural resources or transport. We are already funding 85 partnerships with a total of 160 million Euro ERDF.

European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power.
This year's edition is dedicated to the clean energy transition. Come and visit us and our projects at the stand. Together, we can spread awareness of how to use energy more sustainably, build a low-carbon economy based on renewables and have a strong, united approach to sustainable energy use.
