What's new for Central Baltic in 2021-2027?What will be new? What will remain the same? What will be simplified?
- Joint Programming Committee met for the 7th time in the end of May and the next meeting will be held in July.

In July, the plan is to revisit the programme draft before national approval processes are launched in all countries and confirm the first call application package.

- Following national approval process, the programme is submitted to the European Commission for review and approval.
- The earliest possible deadline for submitting the applications for funding is December 2021.
