We are a European funding programme that encourages cooperation in central Europe. With 246m EUR co-financing, we support partners to work together beyond borders to improve cities and regions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia.
We fund partnerships that jointly address challenges shared across central European cities and regions - related to either innovation, CO2 reduction, natural and cultural resources or transport. In the past we already funded 124 projects. Since June 2016, we are co-financing 35 new projects.
