Previous analysis have shown that the cross-border micro-region equally suffers from a lack of sufficient quantity and quality of urban functions on both sides of the border. Subsequently, a cross-border approach is the most suitable way to tackle this problem. This project aims to fulfil the need for high quality urban functions through two initiatives. Firstly, by establishing a multipurpose centre (the Saint Stephan’s House will be a training center and the Vendéghy-castle will be a coordinating centre and marketplace) where educational programmes, trainings and other events will be held that will facilitate the reintegration to the labour market of those disadvantaged people who might lack competitive skills and knowledge, are long-term unemployed or face negative discrimination due to their ethnicity or gender. Secondly, through creating a cross-border network of local markets, the economy of the microregion is expected to revitalise generating further new jobs as well as raising the general quality of life of people living in the region. Thus the project is in harmony with the most important goals of the TAPE.
