The project will be implemented in the Kazincbarcika micro-region that is part of Northern Hungary, one of the two geographic focus regions of the Swiss Contribution. Kazincbarcika micro-region has 33 municipalities with total 66'000 inhabitants. The town Kazincbarcika with around 30’000 inhabitants is the capital of the micro-region the programme targets at. It is an industrial town confronted with a serious emigration of the inhabitants in the last decade. With around 20%, the unemployment rate in Kazincbarcika and in the micro-region in general is significantly higher than the national average.

The overall goal is an increased employment based on local resources and potentials (e.g. science). Thanks to improved conditions for the set up and expansion of businesses, an improved image of the city and a strengthened local identity, a sizeable number of approximately 100 new and sustainable jobs are directly created (without indirect effects).
The programme consists of one lead project and six related supporting projects. The programme improves the conditions for the set up and expansion of businesses by converting a former school into a business / incubation park and by setting up an application fund for long-term job creation. Innovative cultural activities contribute to a better image and together with the valorisation of existing cultural sights enhance local identity.
The expected results are:
