International Visegrad Fund celebrates 20 years advancing ideas for regional cooperation

This week marks the International Visegrad Fund‘s 20th anniversary. The Fund was established by the governments of the Visegrad Group (V4) countries, Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, as an international donor organization in June 2000.  It has been working since to promote regional cooperation in Central Europe as well as between the V4 and other countries, especially in the Western Balkans and Eastern Partnership regions.

As the only institution of the Visegrad cooperation, it was handed the mission to facilitate the development of closer cooperation among citizens in the region through giving grant support to civic initiatives and encouraging mobility among cultural, educational and scientific institutions by awarding study and artists-in-residence scholarships.
