We value the environment and culture in CENTRAL EUROPE

The environment and culture priority responds to the need for protecting and sustainably using natural and cultural heritage and resources, which are subject to increasing environmental and economic pressures as well as usage conflicts. Heritage and resources also constitute valuable assets of central European regions and represent important location factors benefiting regional development. Furthermore, the focus is on improving the quality of the environment in functional urban areas. To this aim, key challenges like land use conflicts, air, soil and water pollution or waste management will be addressed by the projects funded under this priority.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR NEW FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES?

With the fourth call, the programme offers the opportunity to combine not only Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE outputs and results, but also those delivered by projects funded under other EU programmes.  Thematic focus of our fourth call for project proposals in the environment and culture priority is on

Environment and culture projects

Following three calls for proposals, we are funding 46 transnational cooperation projects on environment and culture topics. With around 86 million Euro ERDF co-financing, partners from all over central Europe will address shared regional challenges in the field of natural and cultural resources. 


Projects working on natural heritage and natural resources

They focus on biodiversity and the conservation of habitats, including topics such as the sustainable management of protected areas and the transnational monitoring as well as protection of lynx populations. Furthermore, several approved projects are addressing water management which includes heavy rain risk management, the protection of drinking water resources and the improvement of river basin management through water retention measures. In addition, projects address the topics of air quality, with a focus on indoor air quality, as well as circular economy.
