Serving the European Union’s objective of „European Territorial Cooperation”, the South Baltic Programme 2014-2020 has been established to unlock the potential for blue and green growth through cross-border cooperation between the coastal regions of Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden.
Reaching from coastal tourism and the maritime industries to clean shipping and renewable energies, the Programme supports cooperation for the benefit of economic sectors which are crucial to the future of the South Baltic. In particular, cross-border actions featuring SME development, sustainable tourism, the uptake of green technologies, sustainable transport, skills development and capacity-building measures for local actors can benefit from the available Programme funding of approx. EUR 80m.
Building on the successful implementation of 69 cross-border projects during the Programme’s first trial phase between 2008 and 2013, “soft” actions such as networking, the transfer of good practices and the joint development of innovative solutions remain at the heart of the Programme, thus allowing the participating regions to boost local and regional development without the need to re-invent the wheel. In current funding perspective 2014-2020 there are already more than 80 projects financed by the Programme. For further information, please visit the website of the Programme: www.southbaltic.eu.
The Joint Secretariat (JS) is responsible for the day-to-day management of the South Baltic Programme. The team of the Secretariat provides advice to applicants, organises calls for project proposals, assesses submitted funding applications, monitors the progress of running operations and assists the decisionmaking bodies of the Programme. The JS assists the Managing Authority (MA), the Certifying Authority, the Audit Authority and the Monitoring Committee of the Programme in carrying out their respective duties. The Programme’s working language is English.
Aimed at spreading the word about the benefits of cross-border cooperation, the JS furthermore coordinates the work of the Regional Contact Points and ensures the implementation of Programme-wide promotion, communication, dissemination and capitalisation activities and events.
The JS is hosted by the Center of European Projects (CPE), a Polish state-budget unit established by the Minister for Regional Development for the purpose of supporting the implementation of European programmes: www.cpe.gov.pl.
