Programme description

Main objectives

The cooperation programme Interreg V-A in the Czech Republic and Poland  addresses the most important cross-border challenges and taps into the potential of eight Czech-Polish border regions.

As the regions involved in the programme have high unemployment rates especially those in the immediate vicinity of the border, the programme focuses on indirect support for employment by tapping into the unexploited potential of the tourism sector.

The programme will also finance measures aimed at improving the skills of young people living in those regions and eliminating administrative barriers which impede their entry into the labour market.

Furthermore, the programme will address the issue of risks prevention, which do not stop at the border. An integrated risk management system is envisaged covering legal, technical and procedural aspects.

One of the objectives of the programme is also to remove the persistent intangible barriers hampering cooperation. Furthermore the programme will promote a mutual understanding and positive perception of communities from both sides of the border.

Funding priorities

The programme will focus on the following four priorities:

  1. Joint risk management;
  2. Developing the natural and cultural resources potential to support employment;
  3. Education and qualification;
  4. Cooperation between institutions and communities.

  • 101 km of reconstructed or upgraded roads
