About the Programme 2014 - 2020
Since 2007, the North Sea Region Programme has supported 78 transnational projects in order to make the region a better place to live, work and invest in.
While the 2007 - 2013 Programme is at its final stage, the new 2014 -2020 Programme has taken shape.
Towards a new Programme
In 2013, a Programme Preparation Group consistsing of representatives from the seven North Sea Region countries participating in the 2007 – 2013 Programme started drafting the Cooperation Programme for 2014 – 2020.
As part of the process, two public consultations were carried out among stakeholders to collect their views on the needs and potential of the region.
The final draft of the Cooperation Programme, as well as Strategic Environmental Assessment and ex-ante evaluation documents, were submitted to the European Commission for approval in late October 2014.
The process is illustrated below:
