30 Apr An Update for the Interreg Central Europe Programme
30 April 2018 – During an Interreg Central Europe meeting in Vienna last week, programme Member States conducted a relevance check of all third call project proposals, unanimously concluding that 127 out of 191 project applications will be fully assessed by the end of 2018. Following the 2018 full assessment, the best transnational project partnerships will then cooperate amongst themselves to ensure their cities and regions become better places to live and work.
Christiane Breznik from the Managing Authority hosted by the City of Vienna explains that despite the fact that the third call for proposals ‘’came with a thematic focus narrowing down the topics’’ not yet covered by previous funded projects, ‘’the open call attracted a huge number of applicants in all nine programme countries.’’ Ms Breznik says that the programme is ‘’very happy to see that cooperation beyond borders takes regions and cities in central Europe forward.”
Interreg Central Europe, after the 127 projects are fully assessed, will enable many new projects to ‘’jointly test and implement new solutions for shared challenges – in the fields of innovation, low-carbon economy, environment, culture, and transport.’’ The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) will fund these new projects with roughly 60 million Euro.
EIfI-Tech has submitted two full applicationin this call, stay tuned for further information and updates of the final approvals!
