First call second step closed with 42 applications 

Out of the 45 projects approved to continue to the second step of the first call for applications, the Joint Secretariat received 42 submitted applications by the deadline.

The highest interest was noticed for 
Priority 2 Sustainable use of common resources where the number of submitted applications was 15. This was followed by Priority 1 Competitive economy with 13 submitted project applications. 

The first call second step application process closed on 18 June at 15:00 (Finnish time). The Joint Secretariat is currently evaluating the received applications.

The funding decisions on submitted applications will be taken by the Steering Committee on 25 August, 2015.

Second call approaching and soon here

The next call for applications is open from 24 August until 23 October, 2015. 

The call is open for all priorities and all specific objectives. The above-mentioned times are deadlines for the first step of the application process. The regular projects passing the first step will continue to the more detailed second-step application process. For the so-called "small projects" the application process only has one step (with the above deadlines).

All applicants considering to apply for funding in the second call are encouraged to book a consultation with the Joint Secretariat in good time before the call to discuss the project idea and how it fits to the Central Baltic Programme. 

The contact details of the Joint Secretariat can be found here.

The location of the national Central Baltic Contact Points

Would your region be interested in an event of your own?

The Central Baltic Information Officers in the national Contact Points (see the map) will be pleased to come to your region, too, to meet your local actors and present the Central Baltic Programme for them. If you are interested, be in contact with your national Contact Point to set a time for a meeting or an event.


Summertime in the Central Baltic offices

During the summer the Joint Secretariat main office in Turku will remain open. Due to holidays, however, the staff will be available on a more limited basis. 

The programme has six National Contact Points, which will be closed during certain periods between June and August.
Have a relaxing and enjoyable summer!
