Danube Transnational Programme 2nd Call for Proposals

Submitted by Alina Danieles… on 10 May 2017

The Danube Transnational Programme is launching 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 PreAccession Assistance (IPA II) and European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).

The call is open from 09.05.2017 to 06.06.2017 (by 15:00 h. CET).  

Objectives and priorities

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). In order to achieve a higher degree of territorial integration of the very heterogeneous Danube region, the transnational cooperation programme will act as a policy driver aiming to tackle the common challenges and needs deriving from specific policy fields. Therefore, transnational cooperation is expected to deliver tangible results through the development and practical implementation of policy frameworks, tools and services. To this end, the programme looks to promote concrete pilot investments (specific objectives are detailed on the Danube Transnational Programme's site).

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 following institutions are eligible to apply:
