The Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020 finances result orientated cross-border cooperation projects in Estonia, Finland (incl Åland), Latvia and Sweden

Process

The overall process of developing the programme logic was to move towards more specific choices with common cross-border ground. To get a good picture of these needs and challenges, input from stakeholders has been collected in many ways, ranging from surveys to thematic workshops and public hearings.   
 
The process is led by the Joint Programming Committee (JPC), which is composed of representatives from the regions and member states of our programme. While the Joint Secretariat is in charge of drafting the programme, the JPC takes formal decision on the content. 
 
Currently we are finishing up the programme document based on the public hearing feedback to suit the needs of our region. The new programme draft will be finalised over the coming months and submitted to the Joint Programming Committee for approval in the beginning of July.
 
After the new regulations are approved by the European Commission, the Programme document will enter national approval processes. Once the processes on the national level are completed and the participating countries officially approve the Programme document, we will submit the programme to the European Commission for review and approval. Stay tuned!
