The first call for applications in 2015 resulted in 35 approved projects contributing to Programme priorities 1 (Capacity for innovation), 2 (Efficient management of natural resources) and 3 (Sustainable transport). Applicants preparing proposals for the second call are encouraged to get acquainted with the current project portfolio of the Programme to enable synergetic effects and to avoid potential overlaps. Summaries of all projects are available while the key information is also compiled in a printable table. The information covers name and acronym, Lead Partner and the country it represents, as well as the topline of what the project is about.
Altogether, EUR 90 million out of EUR 264 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) have now been allocated to these projects. Authorities from local, regional and national levels, research and training institutions, sectoral agencies and associations, NGOs and enterprises from around the Baltic Sea will work together for the next three years in an attempt to make the Baltic Sea Region more innovative, more sustainable and better connected.
