The Danube Transnational Programme has been launched the second call for proposals for its priorities 1, 2 and 3. The Programme offers financial support to transnational projects contributing to the development of a more innovative, better accessible and sustainable Danube Region. The programme has been designed under the territorial cooperation goal of the European Union. In practice, the programme combines financing from the EU structural funds - European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the EU external funds – Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA II) and European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).
Danube Transnational Programme supports the policy integration in the Danube area through projects addressing key challenges and opportunities of the region. The strategic vision is “policy integration” in specific fields of action below the EU-level (not duplicating efforts in policy integration at the EU-level e.g. TEN-T) and above the national level. Transnational projects should influence national, regional and local policies (policy driver).
The programme will allocate up to 50,834,974.48 EUR of ERDF, 4,420,498.53 EUR of IPA and 4,653,192.00 EUR of ENI to the second call for proposals. The maximum EU contribution to the projects is 85% (for ERDF, IPA and ENI project partners).
The AF and its annexes have to be submitted to the Joint Secretariat by 15:00 Central European Time on 06.06.2017 through this link: http://www.interreg-danube.eu/calls/calls-for-proposals/second-call-for-proposals/dtp-second-call-for-proposals-application-form.
Each project has to involve at least three financing partners from three different countries of the programme area. The Lead Partner, has to be located on the territory of an EU Member state of the Programme area.
The second call of the Danube Transnational Programme is organised according to a one-step procedure.
