Funding priorities

We are a European Union funding programme that encourages transnational cooperation beyond borders in central Europe.

With a budget of 246 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), we support partnerships made up of public and private institutions from nine countries: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.

In our projects people from all kind of institutions work together to tackle shared challenges in their cities and regions - in the fields of innovation, CO2 reduction, natural and cultural resources, and sustainable transport. More concretely, our projects build regional capacities by involving and coordinating relevant players from all governance levels. Within the four priority axes, they realise outputs with a focus on policy-learning, pilot actions and pilot investments.
