The Cross-border Cooperation Programme Slovak Republic - Czech Republic 2007-2013 (OP Czech Republic - Slovakia) is designated for the Czech regions of Jihomoravský, Moravskoslezský and Zlínský and the Slovak regions of Trenčínský, Trnavský and Žilinský.
In the case of the cross-border cooperation operational programmes, the cross-border impact of the project is important, where both sides of the border demonstrably benefit from implementation of the project. Projects also have to include beneficiaries from both countries, who cooperate in at least two of the following ways: joint preparation, joint execution, joint utilisation of workers and joint financing.
