Transnational cooperation in the Danube region; application for funding

"Interreg VI B Danube Region" is a funding program of the EU to strengthen the transnational cooperation of the countries in the Danube region. Funding is provided for joint projects of transnational partners in selected thematic areas.



The proposed project is supported by at least three partners from at least three different countries, of which at least one partner is based in an EU member state. This partner takes the lead as "Lead Partner" and is responsible for the application and coordination of the project development and implementation. As a rule, project consortia comprise about 8 to 12 partners from 6 to 10 countries.


Applications are to be submitted online in English on the program's website (see under "Online procedure"; there also detailed information on how to apply).

The German contact points and the secretariats provide potential applicants with information and, if necessary, practical advice during the application process. A monitoring committee composed of national and regional representatives of the participating countries in the respective cooperation area decides on project applications.

Special notes

Projects must be transnational in scope and must measurably and sustainably improve regional development on the ground. Infrastructure measures and the acquisition of material resources are generally not funded within Interreg VI B programs.


In the current funding period, the program covers the period 2021 to 2027. Projects must be completed by 2029 at the latest. The calls and deadlines for submitting funding applications can be found on the program's website (see "Related links"). The period between the publication of the respective current documents (start of the project call) and the submission deadline of the concept is usually between eight weeks and four months. The preparation of project proposals should therefore begin before the official start date of the call.

Processing time

The decision on project funding usually takes 8 to 12 months.
