The Danube Strategic Project Fund (DSPF)

For facilitating the implementation of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (the “EUSDR”), a grant has been awarded by the European Union and the City of Vienna to provide small scale financial support to eligible strategic projects (the “Danube Strategic Project Fund”). DSPF is a new facility aiming at supporting the implementation of transnational strategic projects aligned with the objectives of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) and it primarily focuses on innovative pre-mature projects which could not be funded so far and provides support for projects and initiatives which do not fit into another program or funding scheme. It has specific added value at the interfaces between cohesion and enlargement/ neighbourhood policy and it is co-financed by the European Comission (97 %) and the City of Vienna (3 %).
