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.
An experimental call for proposals will be launched in spring 2019 to capitalise on promising results of the currently funded 85 projects. The programme countries agreed on 2 October that the remaining ERDF funds should help to further roll out existing project results.
In the study "Socio-economic challenges, potentials and impacts of transnational cooperation in central Europe", a group of economists from the think tank wiiw has analysed contributions of Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE to cohesion in central Europe.
Transnational cooperation is central for our projects. It is their joint effort that results in benefits that bring better quality of life to the regions, cities, and ultimately citizens. But what does it really mean? Discover 10 good reasons that speak for transnational cooperation in central Europe - now and in the future.
