The Hungarian coordination of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region is organizing a project financing conference in Budapest on May 11, 2017. The aim of the conference is to provide practical information to interested Hungarian stakeholders about international funding opportunities in connection with the three priority areas coordinated by Hungary, which are sustainable energy, water quality and management of environmental risks.
Throughout 2017 Hungary holds the Presidency of the Danube Region Strategy, and has as its focus energy security, transport infrastructure development and environmentally friendly transport. This event will be implemented as part of the Presidency program.
The Hungarian coordination has two priority objectives: on the one hand, we encourage the realization of regional development project concepts related to the areas coordinated by Hungary, and, on the other hand, we are helping to strengthen the Hungarian applicants' capacities during the application process for receiving EU funds. A similar project financing conference was organized in March 2015. The noteworthy success of Hungarian stakeholders during the 1st round of the Danube Transnational Program (nearly 20% of the committed support has been made available to Hungarian applicants) illustrates the effectiveness of such events.
Date and venue of the conference:
May 11, 2017
MOM Cultural Center 1124 Budapest, Csörsz u. 18
Language of the conference: Hungarian.
