We are pleased to announce that the Programming Committee approved the Interreg VI-A Romania-Hungary Programme, during the 4th PC meeting held online on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022. The next important step in the programming process is the submission of the cooperation programme to the European Commission in view of approval.
In the 2021-2027 programming period, Romania is acting as Managing Authority for the Interreg VI-A Romania-Hungary Programme, which will have a total budget of 175,940,025 Euros, out of which 140,752,020 Euros represent the ERDF contribution, and is going to support projects addressing environmental protection and adaptation to climate change, renewable energy, health, tourism and culture, as well as projects dedicated to improving governance. The envisaged projects will impact the entire Programme area comprising 8 counties, 4 in Romania (Arad, Bihor, Satu Mare and Timiș) and 4 in Hungary (Békés, Csongrád-Csanád Hajdú-Bihar and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg).
The final document is the result of a transparent cooperation process, based on public consultations, and involving relevant stakeholders in the envisaged area, such as central and local public institutions and administrations, universities, NGOs, the general public, through a series of workshops, surveys, interviews, etc.
