DTP Post 2020

The discussion about the future of EU Cohesion Policy 2020 has started. This includes dicussion on the future of territorial cooperation - better know as Interreg. Many institutions and countries have expressed publicly their views on how they see the future. The Danube Transnational Programme would like to contribute to the debate with this website section in which updated information and relevant documents will be included.

With view to the future of the programme and in order to demonstrate the added value of transnational cooperation in the Danube Region, a document containing four ESSENTIAL MESSAGES WITH PROJECT EVIDENCE has been produced by the DTP managing bodies. A longer list of messages about transnational cooperation in general has been jointly elaborated by the Interreg Transnational Programmes.

Moreover, we would like to give the opportunity to relevant stakeholders in the Danube Region to have a say on the future of the Danube Transnational Programme. The collected feedback will be taken into consideration by the programme Monitoring Committee both in the preparation of the third call for proposals and in the discussions about the future of transnational cooperation in the Danube Region. We invite you to fill in this online form with only two main questions.

The European Commission has launched a 'Public consultation on EU funds in the area of cohesion'. This consultation will help to design proposals for the next generation of financial programmes for the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework, which is the EU's long–term budget. Its objective is to collect the views of all interested parties on how to make the most of every euro of the EU budget. Contribute by filling in this questionnaire by 8th March!
