The approved projects cover all priorities and most specific objectives. Funding still remains in all of them (see diagram). More statistics on the first call projects will be published shortly.

The first call first step was open from 18 December, 2014 to 9 February, 2015, resulting in altogether 177 first-step applications. After the first step, 7 small projects were approved for funding and 45 regular projects were approved to continue to the second-step applicaton phase. Out of these, 42 submitted a second-step application.

Finally, the first call resulted in 7 small and 35 regular projects to be the first ones to be implemented in the new Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020.
