Programme description

Main objectives

The Cooperation programme addresses the most important cross-border challenges which are linked to the implementation of Europe 2020 in the German-Austrian border region. Strategically, the programme will promote the better integration of research and development capacities on both sides of the border to exploit the full economic potential of the region. At the same time, it will address environmental issues and increasing challenges linked to climate change, in particular climate and flood risk management. Actions in these two main priorities will be complemented by efforts to foster closer co-operation in legal and administrative questions to create a fully integrated border region.

To achieve these strategic objectives, the programme aims at increasing the number of cross-border business clusters and research networks, to reduce the areas at risk of flooding through common structures, to promote the joint management of environmental protection areas, to intensify cross-border interaction in the tourism sector, and to further improve cross-border governance structures.

Funding priorities

The programme will focus on the following three priorities:

  1. Broadening and improving cross-border capacities in research, development and innovation
  2. Conserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency
  3. Promoting co-operation in legal and administrative questions and between citizens and institutions

Some of the expected results

  • 7 new cross-border clusters for R&D; 250 new jobs in research and innovation
  • 3 new nature protection areas under joint management; 200 km² of newly protected area
  • 10,000 new tourists per year for cultural and natural heritage
  • 20 km of river with decreased risk of flooding
