The new Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme is taking shape
During summer we collected and analysed inputs on our new programme for the years 2021-27. In a broad involvement process more than 1000 stakeholders provided feedback, which will help shape our future funding. Our Member States will soon meet to discuss a very first draft version of the new programme. If you are interested in our future funding opportunities, we recommend to regularly check our website and to follow our social media.

Taking our current cooperation forward
In summer we also submitted our annnual implementation report to the European Commission. 2019 was an important year for us. With all funds allocated to 138 projects, we were taking cooperation forward in central Europe. Our final call for projects aimed to facilitate "capitalisation through coordination". It resulted in nine transnational partnerships that are now taking up existing project results from Interreg and other funding instruments to increase their impact for the benefit of our regions and cities.
