Goals / remit of the organisation: Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE is a European Union cohesion policy programme, managed by the City of Vienna. Since 2007 the programme has encouraged transnational cooperation among regions of nine central European countries. Between 2014 and 2020, CENTRAL EUROPE will be able to co-finance new projects with a total budget of EUR 231 million from the European Regional Development Fund.

After funding 124 cooperation projects between 2007 and 2013, Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will continue to be a relevant instrument for tackling common challenges and needs among cities and regions of Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
