Second tranche of cooperation projects selected
Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will fund 50 new cooperation projects following the second call for proposals. Around 90 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) will be transferred to transnational project partnerships over coming years.
The Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Member States have selected 50 project proposals for funding in a programme monitoring committee meeting in Prague on 16 March 2017. In total, 210 applications were submitted to the second call, all addressing regional challenges and needs in the fields of innovation, low-carbon economy, environment, culture and transport.
Together with 35 projects already funded following the first call, the programme will soon fund a total of 85 projects with around 160 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
These figures show that the programme is fully on track for achieving important thematic performance milestones.
