Discussing internal matter of ERB cooperation, the Executive Board discussed the outcome of the transfer of the ERB International Permanent Secretariat to Poland. Based on the information provided by the Head of IPS, the Board decided to extend his employment and continue the current cooperation with the Foundation for Supporting and Promotion Entrepreneurship in Warmia-Mazury.

Following the discussion, members of the Executive Board approved the involvement of a new EVS volunteer in the works of the Youth Board.

Finally, the ERB Executive Board participated in a short workshop-based discussion on project facilitation within the ERB. All delegations prepared their proposals for possible project initiatives which were then discussed in context of the upcoming South Baltic CBC Programme. As a result, the Board decided to establish a new Task Force that would facilitate project initiation and development within Euroregion Baltic.
