Third Call Projects Launched

The final year of the programming period brought the beginning of the implementation of the projects awarded funding under the Third Call for Proposals, mostly large, infrastructural projects within the Tourism Actions. Underscoring the importance of the development of tourism for the whole border region, many projects marked the beginning of implementation by organising public events to promote the activities in their local communities.

Springtime came along and brought about the conclusion of subsidy contracts for most of the Third Call projects, which many of them marked by organising public signing of the Contracts or other visibility events marking the start of implementation of the projects

As of end of June most of the newly funded 39 projects have started with the implementation, with many promotional activities supported and promoted by the Programme as much as possible, either by participating in the activities or strongly promoting them via the Programme website.
Among the many communication activities implemented by the projects during the first half of 2013 were the ceremonial signing of Subsidy Contracts in Osijek for the CHREN and REG-PHOSYS projects – joint initiatives of the region’s two biggest universities (in Osijek and in Pécs) – in Križevci for projects ViNaK and Cross-border wine routes, in Čakovec for InvestStrategy; furthermore the press conference and the signing of Contract in Virovitica for the Third Call’s biggest investment (and largest tourism development project of the Programme): the Drava4Enjoy project of developing bicycle roads along the river Drava; the numerous gastronomy events organised throughout the spring by the Coolin project in the effort to promote the local wine and food production, to name only a few. 

In order to support the projects in promoting their activities, they are strongly encouraged to share the details of all their activities, especially the ones that are bringing the projects closer to the local communities, which are then disseminated via the EVENTS section of the Programme website to as wide a circle of potential participants as possible.
