priority 4: Cooperation governance
The Programme supports the cooperation of EU-funded projects in project platforms. These actions bring the results of various projects to stakeholders in the Baltic Sea region in a structured way. They show how the different results complement each other, making use of synergies across EU funds.
What are project platforms?
The Programme supports the cooperation of EU-funded projects in project platforms. These actions bring the results of various projects from different EU funding programmes to stakeholders in the Baltic Sea region in a structured way. The actions of project platforms help public authorities and other organisations access project results more easily. They show how the different results complement each other, making use of synergies across EU funds.
Interlink and synthesis solutions
The proposed actions identify solutions developed by projects and other initiatives in EU funding programmes, also co-funded by the partner countries Norway and Russia, relevant for the Baltic Sea region and interlink and synthesise them. The actions focus on communicating and transferring these syntheses of solutions to broader target groups going beyond usual partnerships.
Policy change in the region
Specifically, the actions target public authorities as main drivers of policy change in the region. In addition, actions closely involve relevant pan-Baltic organisations to strengthen communication as well as policy area coordinators of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region to introduce this synthesis into regional policy frameworks. The Programme supports the work in project platforms in line with the Programme’s thematic priorities.
What can I do in my project?
We believe our platforms help implement several important strategies in our region, and, in particular, the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
Synthesise solutions from EU funded projects
Identify solutions developed by different Interreg and other EU funded projects relevant for the Baltic Sea region, structure them and make synthesis based on the needs of the target groups;
Reach out to stakeholders
Set up communication channels and learning tools to reach out to public authorities and other organisations to give them access to synthesis of solutions;
Address policy-making needs on complex challenges that require solutions from different Interreg and other EU-funded programmes across different levels of governance and different sectors;
Analyse know-how developed in research and innovation projects as well as experiences with investment projects co-financed from EU funds and combine them with the findings of Interreg projects;
Engage public authorities
Introduce syntheses of solutions into the daily work of public authorities, specialised agencies and others organisations working in these thematic areas;
Support policy development
Reach out to relevant policy and decision-making authorities and other organisations at the national and pan-Baltic level and provide them streamlined results from different Interreg and other EU-funded projects for more efficient development of policies and governance structures.

Four priorities & nine objectives
Four priorities for cooperation
Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021-2027 creates opportunities for organisations to connect
as if there were no borders. With experience and EU funding, we help them cooperate and put their ideas
into practice. Jointly, we make the life of people around the Baltic Sea better.
The Programme is structured along with four priorities. They guide partners in achieving the most when cooperating across borders.
