The final result of the second call for proposals of the Danube Transnational Programme (DTP) has been disclosed. The Monitoring Committee (MC) has decided on 24th May 2018, that all of the 22 projects approved with conditions, out of the 119 proposals submitted for the 2nd call, have successfully passed the final approval precedure for the 2nd call. The entirety of the projects which were approved under conditions have made the necessary changes as instructed to meet the requirements and have been deemed good to go. The list of approved projects, can be found here. For more information concerning the statistics of the second call, click here.




One of the biggest environmental and societal challenges of today is managing the mobility of people and goods in a sustainable way. Five DTP projects - CHESTNUT, CityWalk, eGUTS, LinkingDanube and Transdanube.Pearls - have taken on the challenge, like others before them, of improving mobility in the Danube region by committing to seek and implement sustainable solutions for the benefit of all inhabitants in the Danube river basin.

DTP is also the only programme yet to accept non-EU countries as full-time partners with a successful integration of three different EU funds (ERDF, IPA, and ENI). The programme area covers nine Member States and five non-EU Member States. We found that it would be interesting to display what position a Serbian partner finds itself in the programme.

In this connection, we asked Mr. Boris CAMERNIK from the Danube Competence Centre (DCC) to respond to a brief written interview consisted of 5 questions, given that the organisation is actively involved in plural projects within the DTP. Boris, himself, takes part in two on-going projects: Green Danube & CultPlatForm_21.

We hope that you will enjoy this interview and learn a bit about our Serbian partner's will to contribute to the Danube area. Many thanks to Mr. CAMERNIK. Click on this link to go to the interview.

DTP'S PARTICIPATION TO THE EWRC2018: joint Exhibition & workshop


The Danube Transnational Programme will organise jointly with other Interreg transnational programmes an exhibition and a workshop in the framework of the upcoming European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC) (Brussels, 8-11 October 2018). Both activities have been selected by the event organisers among many other candidates. The exhibition will give the participants the possibility to make a journey on the added value of transnational cooperation with stands showcasing 10 messages and project examples. The workshop "Idea lab on the future of transnational Interreg cooperation" will give the opportunity to a broad range of stakeholders to brainstorm about transnational cooperation after 2020. The workshop will be promoted via a joint social media campaign: #MadeWithInterreg. Join us in this journey and participate in the EWRC2018!
