The EU cofinanced Interreg V-A Austria-Hungary programme supports cooperation projects across the border region of Austria and Hungary. The main objective is to strengthen economic, social, cultural and ecologic contacts in the border region and to enhance regional competitiveness, contemporaneous weakening of regional disparities.
Austria and Hungary share a long history concerning cross-border cooperation. The framework of the programmes (PHARE, CBC, Interreg II-A, III-A and ETZ) which started 1995 was improved continuously. The cooperation and interaction between people, companies and institutions became self-evident, not only in the financed projects but in everyday life. This positive development will also be supported in the current period 2014-2020.In thematic terms, the support of the programme Interreg V-A Austria-Hungary concentrates on four cooperation areas. You can read more about the priorities and their specific objectives on the programme homepage.
