What is macro-regional governance ?

The Programme supports actions that implement and strengthen governance and communication activities in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR). These actions may facilitate policy discussions and trigger policy changes, build up networks to develop projects and other initiatives in line with the EUSBSR Action Plan, or investigate and secure potential funding sources on the EU, national or regional level to ensure their implementation.

Support to the coordinators

The Programme provides support to the coordinators of the EUSBSR policy areas (PACs) to carry out additional tasks in order to coordinate the planning and implementation of the EUSBSR policy areas. The Programme also supports actions to inform regional and EU stakeholders about the progress and achievements of these areas, changes and next steps in implementing the EUSBSR Action Plan. Further, the Programme supports the organisation of a meeting place in the form of Strategy forums to engage politicians, different levels of governance and civil society to discuss topical issues of the EUSBSR. The Programme also provides support to ensure administrative, communication and capacity building assistance to the national coordinators of the EUSBSR and other stakeholders, for instance, in the form of a strategy point.

 

Enhancing cooperation

In all actions the Programme encourages enhancing cooperation with the partner countries to ensure synergies between the EUSBSR and the strategies of the partner countries as well as progress in the work on common priorities.

Assistance to the policy area coordinators of the EUSBSR

The coordinators of the EUSBSR policy areas coordinate policy discussion and address the need for policy changes. They build up networks, engage stakeholders in the processes in the policy areas in a systematic way, support project idea generation and project implementation. PACs also support monitoring progress and evaluating whether agreed targets are reached, regularly reviewing objectives, processes, actions and results, amending and updating them when needed.

Assistance to a Strategy point

Partners setting up the Strategy point provide administrative support to the national coordinators of the EUSBSR. They support capacity building of the stakeholders of the EUSBSR and the strategies of the partners countries. They support monitoring and evaluating achievements, stimulate exchange and sharing knowledge among the policy areas. They coordinate communication including running the EUSBSR website and other communication tools.

Organisation of Strategy Forums

A Strategy Forum is a meeting place for organisations implementing the EUSBSR and other stakeholders, usually organised every year. Organised as a conference or similar, a Strategy Forum communicate the work of the EUSBSR, its objectives and its achievements as well as progress on the common priorities with the partner countries to policymakers, public authorities, and a wider audience. It stimulates policy discussions and disseminates results. It provides stakeholders with a networking occasion and helps actively engage them in the planning and implementation of the EUSBSR Action Plan.

Four priorities & nine objectives

Funding under four priorities

Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021-2027 creates an environment for public and private partners to work together across borders on their smart ideas. This is how the Programme helps put into practice innovative, water-smart and climate-neutral solutions for the benefit of the citizens across the Baltic Sea region.

The Programme is structured along four priorities, which in the years 2021-2027 guide partners in achieving the most when cooperating across borders.
