More info about Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021 – 2027?

Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021-2027 creates an environment for public authorities, NGOs, companies, academia and others to work together across borders. With some 250 million euros of EU funding, partners from countries around the Baltic Sea bring solutions to tackle existing and rising challenges, and to grasp opportunities for growth.

The Programme shapes innovative, water-smart and climate-neutral societies of the future. Resilient communities, economies and responsive public services prepare the region for upcoming changes and challenges. Sustainable water management helps improve the environmental state of the Baltic Sea and inland waters, whereas blue economy remains an inexhaustible spearhead for innovative business and sustainable growth. With envisioned climate-neutral societies, the Programme supports circular approaches, a transition to low-carbon energy systems and smart green mobility.

Cooperation in Interreg projects will make the Baltic Sea region smarter and greener. It will also help advance actions in many policy areas of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. By funding fresh smart ideas as well as taking stock of Interreg achievements in place, new partnerships will make innovative, water-smart and climate-neutral solutions a common practice.
