MeLoNee – Meet the Local Needs - EN
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.

The action plan is implemented through the INTERREG V-A SKHU cooperation program from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The target area of the action plan, the Cserehát micro-region is characterized by a high rate of unemployment. The main reasons of this phenomenon are mainly the insufficient infrastructure, low level of education and high rate of ageing population.
The overall objective of the TAPE is to reduce the unemployment rate in the micro-region, to re-establish the “Beautiful Cserehát” micro-region, to exploit its endogenous potential and to find solutions to the most serious problems. The above mentioned potential is that of local production, which supports the development of the region and is the central theme of the TAPE. The main objective is going to be achieved thank to the specific objectives of the TAPE, which are the following: to improve the quality of human capital, to improve the production infrastructure, to improve the selling conditions of local products and to develop a regional brand.
