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.

About us

Encs is a very small town in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Northern Hungary, 30 kilometers from the county capital Miskolc. The area has been inhabited for at least 6,000 years. After the Hungarians occupied the area, it became part of Újvár comitatus (later Abaúj county). The first recorded mention of the village was in 1219. The railway line reached the village in 1860. In 1880 Encs had about 1,000 residents. After the treaty of Trianon Encs was the most important village of the parts of Abaúj-Torna county that remained in Hungary. The next few decades brought prosperity. In 1962 it became the centre of the unified districts of Encs, Abaújszántó and Szikszó, and gained town status in 1984. At the same time, the municipalities of Abaújdevecser, Fügöd and Gibárt joined Encs, but this last one became independent again in 2006.
