History and Programme Context:

The accession of the Slovak Republic to the European Union on May 1st, 2004 was the key factor influencing the framework for cross-border cooperation between Austria and Slovakia, leading to a CBC-programme for the shortened period 2004-2006. The renewed and strengthened partnership, in a new setting of instruments and in a joint space for economic and social development, will play an important role in the current programming period. The cross-border cooperation programme between Austria and the Slovak Republic for the programming period 2007-2013 is the first programme with participation of regions from both countries as EU member states for the whole programming cycle. This represents an additional challenge for the strategic orientation of the programme in order to significantly contribute to increasing the economic competitiveness and social cohesion of the border region. The ultimate objective is to ensure further improvement in quality of life of all inhabitants of the border region.
