Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021-2027

Calls for applications are open!

Do you have a smart project idea how to bring in innovative, water-smart and climate-neutral solutions for the benefit of people around the Baltic Sea? Do you want to develop and apply your solutions transnationally in regions around the Baltic Sea? Would you like to show how the EU values stand for real actions?

If you answer – yes – to these questions, we call for your project applications! We offer EU funding for organisations to connect and work as if there were no borders. We provide more than money: we create an environment for working together across borders to let great solutions become common practice.

For core projects

Innovative, waters-smart & climate-neutral societies

Core projects 

Core projects are the main tool to deliver the change Interreg Baltic Sea Region aims at. All core projects are requested to prepare, pilot and transfer practical and durable solutions to the challenges they choose to tackle. These challenges must correspond to one of the Programme objectives within the priorities of Innovative societies, Water-smart societies or Climate-neutral societies.

The main results of the core project are increased capacities of the target groups to deal with the defined challenges. The target groups are organisations that have the competencies to influence the challenge and are interested in the solutions. Hence, reaching out to the target groups and involving them in the preparation of the solution, piloting and transfer are crucial for the success of the core projects.

For small projects

Innovative, waters-smart & climate-neutral societies

Small projects

Small projects aim at facilitating easier access to the Programme, in particular for those partners that have not previously participated in the Programme. Applying for a small project and implementing a small project is much simpler when compared to the core projects. For example, the budget of a small project is smaller than a regular project. The work plan consists of one work package and it may be implemented by small partnerships.

In small projects, partners are encouraged to develop practical and durable outputs and solutions for challenges in the region. These challenges need to correspond to one of the Programme objectives. Small projects should increase capacity of the target groups to deal with the identified challenges during and after the end of the project implementation.The development of solutions is not obligatory in small projects. However, activities need to go beyond pure networking and knowledge exchange.
