Programme description

Main objectives

The programme Interreg V-A Slovakia-Hungary aims at the joint protection, development and touristic utilization of the border regions' common natural and cultural heritage. This includes joint water management, disaster avoidance, the creation of the right conditions for the renewal of cultural and architectural heritage and the development of cross-border sustainable tourism.

The programme fosters the European Union's enhanced internal connectivity as a unique and integrated economic space by providing better access of regional centres to the TEN-T network, as well as to promote environmentally friendly regional public-transport and logistics systems.

Furthermore the programme will focus on the development of key conditions for improving labour mobility and puts emphasis on the integration of the cross-border labour market. It fosters the improvement of accessibility to cultural and natural resources as well as the creation of job opportunities based on local potential and growth strategies.

Finally, the programme aims to continue providing support for the cooperation of public institutions and communities living next to each other on either two side of the border.
