Interreg Central Europe: Second tranche of cooperation projects selected
The Programme will fund 50 new cooperation projects following the second call for proposals. New call is under preparation.
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, 211 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.
New call under preparation
Following closure of the second call, the programme will now start preparing a third call for project proposals.
The new call will be launched at the upcoming annual conference taking place in Berlin on 21 September 2017. More details regarding the thematic focusing of the call will be discussed and decided by the Member States in their next monitoring committee meeting in June 2017. The closure date of the call will depend on the procedure, however, it will at least stay open until the end of the year.
