We are an EU cohesion policy programme that encourages cooperation beyond borders. With a budget of 246m EUR we support public and private organisations to work together across central Europe. Jointly they improve their cities and regions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Our third call for proposals will be launched on 21 September and stay open until 25 January 2018. Around 60 million EUR will become available for new transnational cooperation ideas. In some thematic areas the call will focus on pre-defined topics.
Come to Berlin on 21 and 22 September and celebrate with us 20 years of transnational cooperation in central Europe! We will launch a new call for project proposals and discuss what our projects are doing for central European regions by cooperating beyond borders.
We fund project ideas that go beyond borders to make central European cities and regions stronger and more competitive. We are looking for transnational project ideas related to urban and regional innovation, CO2 reduction, natural and cultural resources or transport. We are already funding 85 partnerships with a total of 160 million Euro ERDF.

By using shared forms of transport we can reduce our expenses and lower our carbon footprint. Best of all, we can meet new people and make our journey more sociable. In 2017, EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK invites local politicians and the public to experience the benefits of shared mobility.

Transnational Interreg cooperation turns 20 in central Europe!
20 years ago the first transnational Interreg programme was launched for central European regions and cities. What started with Interreg IIC CADSES has evolved into today's Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE. Since 1997 transnational cooperation helped hundreds of great ideas come true.
We will celebrate this anniversary with a major conference in Berlin. We will take a closer look at what transnational cooperation has done for central Europe and discuss the role of our programme and projects beyond 2020. Last but not least we will open a new call for proposals at the conference.
