3.4.5 Cross-border intercultural dialogue and co-operation

In addition to already existing networks and partnerships (ARGE Alpen Adria; ARGE Donauländer, ARGE Carinthia / Slovenia, the International Bodensee (Lake Constance) Conference, 10 Euregios etc.), Austria participates in 14 programmes in the framework of the 2014-2020 EU Structural and Investment Funds (ESI-Funds). These include seven cross-border programmes (Austria-Germany/Bavaria, the Alpine-Rhine/Lake-Constance/Upper-Rhine, Austria-Italy, Austria-Slovenia, Austria-Hungary, Austria-Slovakia, Austria-Czech-Republic), three transnational programmes (Alpine Space 2014-2020, Central-Europe 2014-2020 and Danube Transnational 2014-2020) and four interregional cooperation programmes (Interreg Europe, ESPON, INTERACT and URBACT). In addition, there are two nationwide programmes for investments in regional competitiveness and employment, one of which co-financed by the ERDF and the other by the ESF. In the framework of the Rural Development Programme, financed by ELER, the Arts and Culture Division of the Federal Chancellery together with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management has started a new funding initiative: "Leader transnational Culture" supports suitable transformation processes in rural areas by the means of art, culture and creativity.
