In the years 2007-2013, the Elbe / Labe Euroregion - as well as the other Saxon-Czech Euroregions - administered a small project fund (SPF) to promote small cross-border projects. In a study by the University of Ústí nad Labem and the Institute for Economic and Regional Development Leipzig, the SPF was examined in detail in 2017/2018.
One of the most important results was that on the Saxon side approx. 80% of the projects are carried out by associations, foundations and other private actors, while on the Czech side a similarly high proportion was applied for by municipalities and other local and regional authorities.
The final report is available in German and Czech only.
