The European Commission approved a Cross-border Cooperation Operational Programme between Poland and Slovakia for the period 2007-2013. The Programme involves providing Community support as part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for specific Polish and Slovakian regions that lie along their common border: Bielsko-Bialski, Nowosądecki and Krośnieńsko-Przemyski, Žilinský kraj and Prešovský kraj.

DETAIL
Beschreibung: 
The global objective of the Programme is to use a partnership approach to intensify Polish-Slovak cooperation and support the sustainable development of the border region with improvements to cross-border infrastructure, support for socio-economic, environmental and cultural development, and implementation of micro projects based on people-to-people actions. The areas of Oświęcimski Powiat, Pszczyński Powiat, Rzeszowski Powiat and Rzeszów Powiat Grodzki in Poland may take part in projects as an adjacent area. Priority 3: Supporting Local Initiatives (micro projects) This priority aims to promote local initiatives and establish cross-border contacts through implementation of micro projects based on people-to-people actions.
Outcomes: 
Through activities in the area of risk prevention, tourism and protection of cultural and natural heritage, the cross-border area should become more attractive for tourists and investors. There should also be an increase in partnership cooperation in areas such as labour market institutions, research centres, schools and other organisations.
