2nd Arctic Clustering Project Call
To support the implementation of macro-regional and sea-basin strategies, the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme Monitoring Committee is encouraging clustering activities between ongoing projects.
This cross-programme collaboration within the Arctic region is coordinated by the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme. Participating programmes are Interreg Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme, Interreg Botnia-Atlantica, Interreg Nord, Kolarctic CBC, and Karelia CBC.
Clustering activities can take place between projects from different Arctic programmes dealing with the same theme or projects that are addressing the same territorial challenges. The cooperation has to take place between projects funded by different cooperation programmes and the objective is to ensure better implementation of the cooperating projects, more efficient use of the funding, better results and wider dissemination of the results.
The clustering activities shall contribute to the implementation of EU’s Macro Regional and Sea Basin strategies, the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the Action Plan for a Maritime Strategy for the Atlantic, or to the EU Arctic Communication, An integrated European Union policy for the Arctic.
The second clustering call is open between 1st December and 30th April 2019.
Decisions on clustering projects will be made by the Joint Secretariat. The approval process takes approximately 1 month from submission. If you are interested in applying, we recommend that you get in touch with the Regional Contact Point in your region. Alternatively, you can contact Christopher Parker at the Joint Secretariat, firstname.lastname@example.org.
