The partnerships will roll out promising project outputs and results of already funded Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects at the regional and local level, or improve policy making. 

Project ideas have to build on complementing results and outputs from at least 3 different projects co-financed by Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE and directly-managed EU programmes such as Horizon 2020, LIFE, Connecting Europe Facility, etc. 
At least two of the projects have to be Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects.


We are looking for a mix of Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE stakeholders and newcomers from projects funded under directly-managed EU programmes. We believe that cooperation beyond our Interreg community will be central to make results of our currently funded Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects even more effective. Additional partners from other Interreg projects, projects funded by mainstreaming programmes as well as complete newcomers are welcome. 

For more detailed information, please read the application manual.

Horizon 2020 Info Day on the 4th call of Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE

7 May 2019

In the upcoming experimental call for proposals, Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will support the roll out and uptake of project outputs and results in coordination with directly managed EU programmes such as Horizon 2020. 

The Horizon 2020 Info Day will offer an opportunity for lead applicants to present their initial project ideas to potential partners from the FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes.  It is going to be organised by the European Commission's DG RTD.

As a result of the Horizon 2020 Info Day, central European research stakeholders will have:

  • Gained knowledge about the objective and procedures of the experimental fourth call
  • Gained knowledge about project ideas building on results and outputs of approved Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects
  • Started initial discussions about participating in a project proposal

At the same time, the Horizon 2020 Info Day will allow potential lead applicants to:

  • Present their project ideas and existing project results
  • Express their needs in terms of missing partners and results
  • Start discussions with potentially interested FP7/Horizon 2020 organisations

Register by 29 April

Draft agenda

Note: Due to the restricted capacity of the venue, the attendance might be limited.


Partner search

The partner search and matchmaking events is  complemented by digital measures. 

The main tool is our online project idea community. This will be complemented by our LinkedIn group for partner search, which was established in 2016 and has nearly 1000 members. Information on the call will be published here and applicants can publish project ideas and exchange at any given time.




Our applicant training has completely shifted to digital. Video tutorials will be published regularly on our YouTube channel.

The programme website is the place where to find comprehensive information on the call. FAQs will be continuously updated. 

Information on how to develop an application will be available when you need it the most.                               




Our digital approach is complemented by individual support on the national and transnational level.

The network of National Contact Points provides support in national languages on primarily national application issues. 

The compulsory individual consultations (as phone or video conferences) can be booked from 8 April to 28 June.
