Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021 - 2027

Funding cooperation 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. Each Interreg Baltic Sea Region project has its own share in building:

Priority 1

Innovative societies

1.1 Resilient economies and communities
1.2 Responsive public services

Priority 3

Climate-neutral societies

3.1 Circular economy
3.2 Energy transition
3.3 Smart green mobility

Priority 2

Water-smart societies

2.1 Sustainable waters
2.2 Blue economy

Priority 4

Cooperation governance

4.1 Project platforms
4.2 Macro-regional goverance

COOPERATION ACROSS BORDERS THAT SHAPES THE REGION

Interreg Baltic Sea Region

Interreg Baltic Sea Region is a source of EU funding for those with smart ideas to shape the region. The Programme supports partners from eleven countries from around the Baltic Sea in putting innovative, water-smart and climate-neutral solutions into practice.

The Programme is an agreement between EU member states Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden and the northern parts of Germany as well as partner countries Norway and the northwest regions of Russia. The Programme is funded by the European Union and approved by the European Commission.

Mission

We let great ideas trigger cooperation.
We cooperate to let great ideas thrive.

EUROPEAN TERRITORIAL COOPERATION

What is Interreg?

Interreg, known as European Territorial Cooperation, is one of the two goals of the EU Cohesion Policy. Interreg contributes to a harmonious economic, social and territorial development of the Union as a whole. It provides a framework for working across borders for partners from different Member States in the European Union and beyond.
