Interreg Baltic Sea Region Dialogues: Results, Challenges and Joint Priorities

Summary

This year, the session of Interreg Baltic Sea Region Dialogues celebrates the 20th anniversary of the work in the Russian National Sub-Committee of the Programme. Representatives of the Russian regions in the Programme share achievements of Interreg projects that make them proud.

Following this, we look into some examples of transnational cooperation projects. All in all, partners from Russia have taken part in 48 out of 140 projects of Interreg Baltic Sea Region. The projects cover all three Programme priorities: capacity for innovation, sustainable transport and management of natural resources. Over 500 partner organizations from all Baltic Sea region countries cooperate in transnational projects with Russian participation. In this session Russian and EU partners share solutions they develop in their projects and how they validate the usefulness of these solutions for their cities and regions.

- What solutions are developed in transnational cooperation projects?
- How do the partners pilot these solutions during the project implementation? Which organisations take part in these pilots?
- What is the next step in sharing these solutions to organisations outside the projects’ partnerships?

We also talk about the future of transnational cooperation in the Baltic Sea region: what the upcoming programme period 2021-2027 brings for us. The Managing Authority/Joint Secretariat of the Programme present the Programme’s thematic priorities ‘Innovative societies’, ‘Water-smart societies’, and ‘Climate-neutral societies’. We also look into types of cooperation projects: what activities can be planned in new projects. The members of the Russian National Sub-Committee share their expectations to future projects. In this, they consider strategic sustainable development goals for constituent entities of Russia and the North-West Federal District as a whole.

- What do the Russian regions expect from new transnational cooperation projects?
- What is the advice to partnerships when developing their ideas for Interreg Baltic Sea Region?
