The grant scheme will see 11.7 mEUR being used for joint Hungarian-Croatian business developments.

The project is led by the Croatian Agency for SMEs, Innovations and Investments (HAMAG-BICRO) as the Lead Beneficiary, and managed together with four Croatian border counties' (Međimurska, Koprivničko-križevačka, Virovitičko-podravska and Osječko-baranjska) regional development agencies, as well as two Hungarian entrepreneur's centres from border counties Zala and Somogy and the Baranya County Development Agency as project beneficiaries. 
The project beneficiaries will support joint projects of Hungarian and Croatian SMEs from the border area through open calls for proposals, first of which is to be launched in June. More information you can find on the Programme website
