Transnational Interreg cooperation turns 20 in central Europe!

20 years ago the first transnational Interreg programme was launched for central European regions and cities. What started with Interreg IIC CADSES has evolved into today's Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE. Since 1997 transnational cooperation helped hundreds of great ideas come true. 

We will celebrate this anniversary with a major conference in Berlin. We will take a closer look at what transnational cooperation has done for central Europe and discuss the role of our programme and projects beyond 2020.  Last but not least we will open a new call for proposals at the conference.
