Three new projects approved by the Monitoring Committee

The projects PartiSEApate, BSR TransGovernance and ONE BSR have green light. The Monitoring Committee of the Baltic Sea Region Programme decided to grant support to the three new cooperation projects at its meeting in Riga on 12 June.

The projects involve 45 project partners and will receive 4.3 million EUR from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The projects implement two horizontal actions of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region's Action Plan: "Strengthening multi-level governance, place based spatial planning and sustainable development" and "Build a regional identity".

PartiSEApate - Multi-level Governance in Maritime Spatial Planning throughout the Baltic Sea Region
The partners will develop a pan-Baltic approach to Maritime Spatial Planning and a concept for its institutional framework and governance model. Instruments and models will be tested within three pilot cases.
Approximate project budget: 0.9 million EUR

BSR TransGovernance - Multi-Level Governance support to the implementation of PA 11 in the EU Baltic Sea Strategy
The project will demonstrate how multi-level governance models and tools can better align transport policies in the Baltic Sea region at various administrative levels and incorporate the business perspective.
Approximate project budget: 1.6 million EUR

ONE BSR - Baltic Metropolises Accelerating Branding and Identity Building of the Baltic Sea Region
Baltic Sea Region does not have a strong shared identity or image easily recognised by outsiders. Marketing of the region can be structured and performed in a more systematic way. The project will use the existing regional features to attract tourists, investors and talents.
Approximate project budget: 3 million EUR

Six project applications had been submitted during the fifth call to the Baltic Sea Region Programme's Joint Technical Secretariat at Rostock and Riga by the end of March 2012. The applicants had to demonstrate their potential to contribute to the development of the whole Baltic Sea region. The Programme's Monitoring Committee including national and regional representatives from all eleven participating countries selects the best project proposals. In 2012 the Monitoring Committee is chaired by Latvia (Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development of Latvia).
