On 28 and 29 April representatives of eleven countries around the Baltic Sea will meet in Stockholm, Sweden for the second meeting of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Monitoring Committee. The main focus of the meeting will be on the selection of concept notes from the first call for application for the funding priorities 1-3.
282 concept notes were submitted in the first call that was closed on 2 February 2015. Based on the assessments by the Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat the Monitoring Committee will select concept notes that will be invited to develop and submit full applications in the second step, which will close in July. The final approval of applications is planned at the third meeting of the Monitoring Committee meeting in November 2015. The second call for applications is planned to be launched in late 2015/early 2016.
At the meeting, the Committee will also approve applications of Priority Area Coordinators and Horizontal Action Leaders of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region to support tasks related to their role as a coordinator/leader of a thematic area set in the Action Plan of the Strategy.
In addition, the Monitoring Committee will discuss and decide on several other issues important for the implementation of the Programme, like the Communication Strategy, amendments of the Programme Manual, or rules and procedures related to State aid.
After the meeting you will find in the news information about the main outcome of the meeting as well as the list of selected concept notes.
