Interreg Baltic Sea Region calls for applications to prepare and organise the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region Forum 2020 (Strategy Forum 2020). Strategy Forums aim at shaping debates among decision-makers from businesses, politics, international organisations and civil society from across the Baltic Sea region. They are important platforms that ensure visibility of the Strategy and strengthen cooperation in the region.

The call is organised in two steps. By 28 June 2019, applicants need to submit a project idea form to the Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat of Interreg Baltic Sea Region (MA/JS).

Following the NC pre-selection, the MA/JS will approach the endorsed applicant(s) to provide access to the online application system to fill in the application form. The complete application is to be provided by 4 October 2019.
