New Programme Officially started


Interreg VI-A IPA Hungary – Serbia 2021 – 2027 programme previously approved by EC, has been officially launched on 22 February 2023. On this date, the Monitoring Committee of the Programme held its first official meeting in Szeged, Hungary. Major programming rules and conditions of the forthcoming Call for Proposals (CfP) have been discussed. The CfP is expected to be launched very soon, so get prepared and check our website or social networks regularly for more updates on this subject.

In the meantime, here are some basic data on the process behind us, which resulted in this Programme becoming a reality:

Hungary and the Republic of Serbia co-operated in a joint structure through shared management and joint decision making, in order to prepare the ground for the 2021 – 2027 Programme to be launched. In the period between 2019 and 2021, a thorough and dedicated work has been conducted by the Programming Committee, current 2014-2020 Programme bodies, National Authorities and representatives of the EC DG REGIO. The Programme priorities and objectives (chosen by the participating partner countries from the list of the Policy objectives and Specific objectives available in Article 3 of the 2021/1058 Regulation and Article 14 of the (Interreg) Regulation 2021/1059), as well as the main implementation modalities has been developed mutually. As a result of this process, Territorial Analysis (TA), Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and the Interreg Programme (IP) documents have been prepared, and the the IP has been submitted to European Commission on 01 April 2022. These strategic documents are available in the download section of our website.
