Acronym SI-AT
Type of Fund Structural Fund
Description of programme
"Interreg Slovenia – Austria"

An analysis of the border region Slovenia-Austria showed specific needs in the fields of research, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), environment, resource efficiency and public administration. The conceptual orientation of the CP therefore follows also the ambition of the Europe 2020 strategy with its aims at "smart, sustainable and inclusive growth". Common challenges and intervention needs shared by regions in the programme area are taken into account in order to contribute better to social, economic and territorial cohesion. Consequently, to overcome defined challenges and intervention needs, the programme strategy builds on the following thematic objectives:

  • Strengthening research, technological development and innovation
  • Preserving and protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency
  • Enhancing institutional capacity of public authorities and stakeholders and efficient public administration
