On 21st December 2015 the South Baltic Joint Secretariat published the list of project applications submitted to the 1st call for proposals in the South Baltic Programme.
In total 27 applications were submitted totalling more than 35 MEUR. As predicted, the most popular measure was the objective 2.1 Sustainable tourism which gathered 9 proposals for almost 12 MEUR. The objective 4.1 Skills development came second with 4 project applications requesting more than 6 MEUR. Other objectives, except for 5.1. attracted 3 applications each which indicates fairly equal interest from stakeholders in most of Programme’s objectives.
As to the objective 5.1 Capacity building, it got only two proposals with total requested funding of 0,75 MEUR. One of the partnerships is ERB’s CaSYPoT project (former SYPERB), which is promising news as only two project applications will be competing for funding.
The assessment process of the application is expected to take place within the first quarter of the year and will be followed by the South Baltic Monitoring Committee decision. This is expected to take place on 26-27th April 2016 in Sweden.
