The application was submitted
Following a months-long intensive project work, a major milestone in the ECoC 2023 Veszprém application was reached. The application was completed and officially summited on 20 December.
The ECoC competition is an initiative that is much more than mapping and developing cultural values. It is an urban development programme that offers various opportunities for the affected settlements through developing infrastructure, supporting civilians by involving less active communities, providing a more active and vivid social and cultural life, and last but not least by addressing the challenges of seasonality, reducing migration, and retaining talented young people through creating brand new jobs.
The decision about the shortlisted cities which then are asked to submit more detailed applications is expected around mid-February 2018.
