Achievements of transnational cooperation as well as planning the next programme period 2014-2020 are on the agenda of the Baltic Sea Region Programme during the year 2012.
At the Programme Conference in Lilleström (Oslo Region), we will see what difference transnational cooperation can make when successful projects continue working as thematic clusters (energy, innovation, transport and water). We will also look into the future of the European Territorial Cooperation 2014 - 2020. Will the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the Baltic Sea Region Programme go hand in hand? We will discuss the relationship between the Strategy and the Programme's priorities.
The Baltic Sea Region Programme Conference 2012 will run back to back with the 20th Baltic Sea States Subregional Cooperation (BSSSC) Annual Conference, from 17 to 19 September 2012, in the same venue.
Registration deadline is 31 August. The hotel rooms are reserved till 16 July.
The European Union's Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 promotes regional development through transnational cooperation projects. Partners in 11 countries around the Baltic Sea work together to find joint solutions to common problems.
We look forward to meeting you in Norway - the dynamic and beautiful Oslo region!
On behalf of the conference hosts: Norwegian Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development, Eastern Norway County Network and the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013.
