Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2014 - 2020

In the first call for proposals, the Monitoring Committee of Interreg Baltic Sea Region selected 35 projects for funding and allocated EUR 90 million of EUR 264 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to them. In May 2017, the Monitoring Committee selected 39 additional projects in the second call for funding. This time, the Monitoring Committee allocated EUR 87 million from the ERDF. In the third and last general call for regular projects, 31 projects were selected in September 2018, committing EUR 56 million of ERDF. 

Additionally, in order to facilitate the capitalisation of results of projects funded by Interreg Baltic Sea Region and other funding schemes, the Monitoring Committee selected six project platforms in June 2018, and three additional ones in April 2019. The Monitoring Committee also granted nine successfully finalised Interreg Baltic Sea Region projects an extension stage. These projects were selected for funding in April 2019.

The projects are allocated to three Programme priorities, i.e. innovation, natural resources and sustainable transport.
