Citynet – Network of MicroRegional Centres in the Austrian-Hungarian Border Region

Cross-border cooperation is more important than ever: European competition between regions, EU funds, the disappearance of borders for international markets as well as population concentration in metropolitan areas all contribute to the urgency of establishing strong regional relations. The INTERREG IIIA Project Citynet supports cross-border cooperation of municipalities and cities in the Austrian-Hungarian border Region.
