Programme description

Main objectives

The Integrated Regional Operational Progarmme (IROP) will improve public administration and public services in the Czech Republic, particularly in the areas of education, health care, social services, social inclusion, regional transport, urban development, and culture.

Funding priorities

The Programme will focus on the following main priorities:

  • Better connectivity of the regions through the construction, reconstruction and modernization of regional roads of 1st and 2nd class, development of public transport and creation of risk prevention interventions (e.g. floods)
