Integrated Development Plan of the City of Ostrava - ROP NUTS II Moravia - Silesia
The Statutory City of Ostrava is issuing CALLS for project submissions for Integrated Development Plans of the City of Ostrava (IDP) which are financed by the EU with funding channelled through the Regional Operational Programme Moravia-Silesia (ROP).
Appeal for the IDP Ostrava - Magnet for the region (czech version)
Appeal for the IDP Ostrava - Pol of development (czech version)
These calls include precise specifications of the conditions which must be met by individual projects in order to access funding from the Regional Operational Programme Moravia-Silesia (ROP) as part of the Integrated Development Plans.
The calls are continual – which means that it will be possible to submit projects at any time up to the end of the programming period (2013) or until all available funding has been accessed.
The IDP Executive Committee meets quarterly and assesses the submitted projects according to set criteria. On the basis of this assessment the Committee recommends that projects be approved or rejected by the City organs (City Council and City Assembly). After approval by the City Assembly projects are submitted to the Office of the Regional Council which takes the definitive decision on the award or non-award of the subsidy.
The Integrated Development Plan of the City of Ostrava is a key policy document enabling the City to achieve its full development potential by accessing structural funding with an emphasis on synergy of interventions by relevant operational programmes and the strategic concentration of resources. An Integrated Development Plan (IDP) such as Ostrava’s consists of a set of mutually coordinated and interconnected activities implemented within a particular territory or as part of a themed approach in towns and cities.
The advantage of an Integrated Development Plan is that, although such plans are based mainly around the use of ROP funding, it is also possible to incorporate funding from another type of operational programme – Thematic Operational Programmes (TOPs). In such cases, TOP projects incorporated into Integrated Development Plans have a better chance of succeeding amid strong competition, as they already have extra funding attached to them.
