The cooperation programme Interreg V-A Austria-Hungary is a European funding programme that encourages cross-border cooperation in the border region of Austria and Hungary and aims to find solutions for common regional challenges.

The programme funds projects in one of the four priorities:

  1. Competitiveness of SMEs
  2. Environment and resource efficiency
  3. Sustainable transport
  4. Better institutional cooperation

Projects must demonstrate clear added value of the cross-border cooperation and to contribute to the output indicators of the programme. They must include at least two project partners, from both sides of the border.

Eligible partners are public or public equivalent organisations, non-profit organisations, other institutions which on project level act in public interest and private institutions having legal personality established within the programme area.

Projects receive funding from the EU up to a maximum of 85% of their total costs. All projects have to raise a financing contribution out of public or private means of at least 15%.

Project applications can be submitted continuously. Decisions about funding are taken by the Monitoring Committee which in general meets twice a year. To ensure a smooth preparation of the decisions, only those applications are brought to the MC that have been submitted 10 weeks before the MC meeting.
