The transnational programme Interreg Central Europe opened its first call for project proposals. Applicants are welcome to send their project proposals until 23 February 2022.
In its first call, the programme expects to spend 72 million EUR from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Thereby, the budget will finance projects from the following four thematic priorities:
1. Cooperating for a smarter central Europe: 22 million EUR
2. Cooperating for a greener central Europe: 36 million EUR
3. Cooperating for a better-connected central Europe: 7 million EUR
4. Improving governance for cooperation in central Europe: 7 million EUR
The Interreg Central Europe programme organised the first call for proposals in a “one-step” procedure. Furthermore, applicants must submit their project proposals in English language and only through the web-based Joint Electronic Monitoring System (Jems) available at https://jems.interreg-central.eu.
Please note that Jems will be online in 2022, as from at least three weeks before the set deadline for submitting project proposals.
