The XV session of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme Stakeholder Dialogue marks the 30th anniversary of the Interreg — the main EU regions’ cooperation instrument both within the EU and beyond. This year the session participants looked back on how the cooperation between Russian regions and BSR EU partners started more than 20 years ago and how it has evolved, what the current results are and what to expect from the upcoming programme period. Project partners spoke about the tangible results that projects achieved in the funding period 2014-2020, covering all three Programme priorities: capacity for innovation, sustainable transport and management of natural resources.
