The INTERREG VI-A Program Bavaria - Austria 2021-2027 pursues the strategy of an innovative, sustainable economy, a resilient environment, sustainable tourism as well as integrated regional development - embedded in a joint cross-border INTERREG governance.
For small and medium projects:
- Priority 4: Integrated regional development
- Objective 6: Integrated territorial development to ensure quality of life
- Priority 5: Cross-border governance
- Objective 7: Joint reduction of border barriers
The aim in SC 6 is to secure and improve the quality of life locally through integrated regional development. Therefore, the work of the six Euregios to implement the Euregional strategies in the functional sub-regions of the programme area is promoted. To this end, the (sub-)regional challenges in the respective priority themes are to be met by means of cross-border projects.
The Euregional strategies identify various fields of action for development in the functional border regions of Bavaria and Austria. The projects to be supported must be reflected in these fields of action. Further information can be found on the homepage of the respective Euregio:

Specific objective 7 focuses on the reduction of existing barriers and border obstacles in order to strengthen the performance and capacities of the governance setting in the program area. Thus, living and working together in the everyday life of the border regions should be improved through encounter measures and long-term cross-border cooperation and the use of existing common potentials in the program area should be facilitated.
The projects to be funded must actively contribute to the reduction of the above-mentioned obstacles and fit into one of the three following thrusts:
- Promotion of encounter measures (People2People projects): By supporting local or small-regional encounter measures, the European idea of cross-border integration is to be made tangible for citizens in areas of their daily lives. The focus of such micro-projects (up to 5,000 € total costs) is on joint events, meetings and exchange opportunities. Primary contact persons for micro-projects are the Euregios in the program area.
- Removal of legal-administrative border obstacles: By means of projects, framework conditions are to be created in order to actively counteract border obstacles and subsequently to be able to better exploit the potential of the border region through cooperation. Projects are based on the thematic areas of the "Border Obstacles" paper of the INTERREG program, into which they must fit.
- Promotion of structural "governance projects": The aim of the projects is to build and establish joint structures that have a permanent, long-term cross-border character. It is important that a binding declaration of cooperation is available at the end of the project.

P2P projects are designed to promote cross-border encounter measures and can be submitted under Specific Objective 7 without exception. Up to 5.000€ can be applied for as eligible costs.
