Our Project Managers (see the contacts below) provide the in-depth consultations to the projects planning to submit the application for the first call. The programme strongly recommends having at least one, preferably several, consultations.
Please note that consultations are ended two weeks before the deadline of the call. After this moment, the Joint Secretariat focuses support to earlier consulted projects and their practical questions in filling in the application form.
The first call for project proposals to the Central Baltic Programme 2021-2027 will be open in the period 10 February to 31 March, 2022. During that time, the joint electronic monitoring system Jems will be open for filling in the application. The deadline is at 12 Finnish time.
Please check our Key documents section for the Programme Manual and Guide for Applying for a Project: these two documents will give you all the information you need to start preparing your application in full detail.
Use the Project idea form to define the project idea in the preparation phase of the project and think about the central questions to prepare for consultations.

Disclaimer: The approval of a new programme is a collaboration between the regions and participating Member States and the Commission. We have received Commission feedback throughout the process, but once we submit the programme, the so-called formal process and interservice consultation in the Commission starts. For us this means that after today’s celebration we still have to work hard. For you this means that you should be aware that some updates to the programme document and Programme Manual can still come. We will update and inform if something relevant happens.
The Central Baltic Programme 2021-2027 is a EU cross-border cooperation programme. Its scope is to finance high quality projects with European Regional Development Funds in Finland (including Åland), Estonia, Latvia and Sweden, that aim at solving common challenges together and across borders.
