Cooperation Programme Interreg V-A Slovenia-Austria in the period 2014-2020

Programme

PREPARATIONS FOR THE FUTURE SI-AT PROGRAMME ARE UNDERWAY

In May 2018, the European Commission presented a package of legislative proposals for regulations governing regional development and European cohesion policy after 2020. Based on proposals for regulations (which are not fully agreed on yet), the Monitoring Committee of the Cooperation Programme Interreg V-A Slovenia-Austria established a Programming Task Force (PTF) which met for the first time in July 2019. The main task of the PTF SI-AT 2021-2027 is to guide and supervise the preparation of the Interreg Programme Slovenia-Austria programming document for the programming period 2021-2027.

Also in the 2021-2027 programming period, the programme will be managed by the Slovene Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy (GODC) acting as Managing Authority and Joint Secretariat in close cooperation with representatives of both Member States, Slovenia and Austria (with its three Bundesländer Carinthia, Styria and Burgenland).

The programming process for the future Interreg Programme Slovenia-Austria 2021-2027 is well underway and builds on the experiences from current as well as past programming periods. The EU regulatory framework and in particular the draft proposals of European Regulations applicable for Interreg programmes are being observed in all programming steps. The EU funding to be allocated to the future Interreg programme is not known yet.

BE INFORMED AND INFORM: TAKE PART IN THE FIRST PUBLIC CONSULTATION

In August 2020, the final report on Territorial and Socio-Economic Analysis has been prepared by the team of external experts supporting the programming process.

On the basis of the analysis and discussions held with the representatives of the PTF SI-AT, preliminary Strategic Orientations were prepared. This document represents a discussion paper on considerations for the selection or obstacles regarding the non-selection of Specific Objectives for the future Interreg Programme Slovenia-Austria 2021-2027.

The selection of the programme policy objectives and related specific objectives is an important strategic step, which relies on the input of key stakeholders – (potential) beneficiaries, policy makers, thematic experts, etc. A series of activities are planned to collect your comments, opinions, suggestions or insights on the findings in so-far prepared documents. This will help the Programming Task Force in reaching an informed decision on the strategic orientation for the new Interreg Programme.

Please help us to disseminate the information about the public consultation by sharing it with all potentially interested parties.

Have your say in the shaping of the future programme!
