Operational Programme amended & approved by the Commission on 5 January 2012

On 5 January 2012 the EU Commission approved an amendment of the Operational Programme of the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013. Main changes concern the financial table. The ENPI funding has been reduced from 22.6 to 8.8 Million Euros. This reduction was necessary due to the non-signature of the Financing Agreement between Russia and the EU. Due to this the ENPI funds have been reduced to support only the involvement of partners from Belarus. Furthermore, a shift of ERDF funds between priorities was implemented in the Financing Plan to reflect the reviewed programme priorities. Additional amendments include some updates, e.g. related to the non-eligibility of Russia, the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, the planned internal evaluation, and ENPI-related requirements.

In the section Programme documents you can download the amended Operational Programme and an overview of the amendments.

The amended Operational Programme v3.0 was approved by the Programme's Monitoring Committee at a meeting in Berlin on 27-28 September 2011 and was submitted to the EU Commission for approval in October 2011.
