This will be a first occasion to investigate the possibility of creating new projects to submit for proposals in the South Baltic Programme or using other funding possibilities in the field of Energy and electromobility.

To be able to do that, the conference will provide you with relevant information concerning the on-going discussion on Energy topics in the South Baltic Sea, Energy & electromobility objectives in the EU Baltic Sea Strategy, to end up with the support you can get from Umbrella-project in the project application phase. Being the conference co-organized with the EUSBSR PA ENERGY Coordinator,  participants will meet with experts in the frame of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. We will also propose a special „Microactivity” aiming experts related to the electromobility.

During the ERB Executive Board meeting in Palanga (18th-19th September) a position paper on the future EU Cohesion Policy after 2020 was signed by Ms. Akko Karlsson, ERB president, and Mr. Per Ole Petersen, ERB Vice-President.

In the document, the ERB adopted four main recommendations regarding a strengthened EU Cohesion Policy, the importance of European Territorial Cooperation and people-to-people projects, improved coordination with macro-regional strategies, and simplified administrative and financial regulations.

ERB supports economic, social and territorial cohesion, recognizing the importance of the European Structural and Investment Funds for growth and jobs underlying, in this frame, the need of distinguishing between cohesion and investment policies.

One point that has been underlined regards the need of adopting shared management instruments for a real involvement of actors at local and regional level, apart from the development of small-scale, people-to-people projects in order to build-up trust in the neighbouring regions.

ERB will strive to align its activities with the macro-regional strategies- with the EUSBSR in this case. Moreover, in this macro-region Russia plays a fundamental role that pushed ERB to commit in carrying on a dialogue with Kaliningrad Region on topics of common interests.

Finally, ERB asked for simplified administrative and financial regulations.

Olsztyn, 25-26th May 2017. The branch of Polish Society of Economic (Polskie Towarzystwo Ekonomiczne Oddział w Olsztynie), sited in Olsztyn, organized with the University of Warmia and Mazury the All-Poland scientific conference “Methodology of youth work in NGOs and youth councils in Poland and other European Union countries in economic, legal and social terms.” During the meeting, Euroregion Baltic Youth Board has been presented by one of its members, Dawid Jędrzejak, representative of the Warmińsko-Maurzskie Region (Poland). ERB Youth Board can certainly be taken as a valid example of cooperation that strives for more targeted youth policies, exchange opportunities, and the promotion of education. ERB Youth Board, that could not be better represented by someone who works for it, is currently working on two new projects: Baltic Leaders and Erasmus +.
