Regional Operational Programme Moravia Silesia for the period 2007–2013
The resources from the structural funds of the European Union designated in the years 2007–2013 exclusively for the Moravian-Silesian Cohesion Region may be utilised by means of the Regional Operational Programme Moravia Silesia (hereinafter the ROP Moravia Silesia). The goal of the programme is to contribute to the overall development of the Moravian-Silesian Cohesion Region, which is territorially identical with the Moravian-Silesian region. For the period 2007–2013, 716.09 mil. EUR have been earmarked for the ROP Moravia Silesia from the structural funds of the European Union, the equivalent of approximately 2.68 % of all resources designated from EU funds for the Czech Republic. Further, from Czech public sources, financing for the programme should be increased by another 126.37 mil. Euro.
The ROP Moravia Silesia is divided thematically into 4 basic priority axes:
- Regional Infrastructure and Accessibility
- Support to Regional Prosperity
- Development of Cities
- Development of Countryside
Each priority axis contains specific areas of support, or sections of areas of support, which define what types of projects could be supported within the context of the relevant priority axis and who should be the recipient of the subsidies.
The global objective of the ROP Moravia Silesia is to accelerate the region’s development and to increase its competiveness through a more effective use of its potential. This objective shall be accomplished mainly through improving the citizens’ standard of living and enhancing the region’s attractiveness for investors and visitors, improving work and leisure time conditions by modernising transport infrastructure and developing other essential regional elements for its citizens and visitors. The competiveness of the Moravia Silesia Region shall be enhanced by creating suitable conditions for entrepreneurship and attractive marketing of the Moravia Silesia Region.
