Seize the Opportunity: Interreg Central Baltic Opens Fourth Round of Calls for Cross-Border Projects! 

The Central Baltic Programme 2021-2027, an EU cross-border cooperation initiative, is inviting project ideas for its fourth round of calls. With a budget of 152 million euros from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), this programme aims to support high-quality projects in Finland (including Åland), Estonia, Latvia, and Sweden, fostering collaboration to tackle common challenges across borders.


In a world facing global challenges, regional cooperation is key to driving sustainable development and innovation. Interreg Central Baltic provides a unique chance for organizations to secure funding for cross-border initiatives, aligning with the programme’s commitment to collaboration and problem-solving.
