The Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme has opened a Seed Money Call today November 5th. Seed money is funding provided by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme to support the preparation of projects in line with the Action Plan of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR). With seed money support projects can be prepared for any funding source available in the region. Because the EUSBSR is currently under revision the applicants should discuss the project ideas and their contribution to the revised Action Plan with the relevant PAC/HAC as early as possible. Read more about the call here.

The task of HA Neighbours is to bring stakeholders from the EU and the non-EU countries – Belarus, Iceland, Norway and Russia – together in a constructive and mutually advantageous manner.

These issues are focused on three different levels which are between 1) strategies/policy 2) governance/coordination and 3) implementation.
