The transport priority provides answers to the core-periphery dichotomy in the CENTRAL EUROPE area. Thanks to the projects funded under this priority, the gap between peripheral and less accessible regions and the area’s well-connected centres will be reduced. The connections of regions and cities to the European transport networks will improve and multi-modal environmentally friendly passenger and freight transport will be strengthened.

Project partners so far
Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will fund 7 new transport projects
following the second call for proposals. Around 13 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) will be transferred to transnational project partnerships over coming years to improve regional passenger transport as well as multimodal freight transport.
European roads remain the safest in the world. In 2016, the EU counted 50 road fatalities per one million inhabitants, against 174 deaths per million globally. Last year marked a turning point in reducing road fatalities, the number of those who lost their lives on the roads was reduced by 2%. This represents a 19% reduction over the last six years.
The funding programme CENTRAL EUROPE 2007-13 was our predecessor. More than 1.300 public institutions and private businesses closely
cooperated in 124 transnational projects for the benefit of our regions. Take a look at what Interreg achieved already back then:
