Call overview

This call funds projects that address innovation capacity, climate change and resource sufficiency, or cooperation opportunities.

Priorities

The 5th Call for projects opens for all three Priorities. Besides main projects in priority 1 and 2, Interreg NPA is looking forward to funding small-scale capacity building projects in Priority 3.

  • PRIORITY 1: Strengthening the innovation capacity for resilient and attractive NPA communities
  • PRIORITY 2: Strengthening the capacity for climate change adaptation, and resource sufficiency in NPA communities
  • PRIORITY 3: Strengthening the organisational capacity among NPA communities to make use of cooperation opportunities

Priority 3 thematic focus

The novelty of Priority 3, is that it aims to build the cooperation capacity and experience among the stakeholders in the NPA area, leading to the development of more resilient communities. Actions funded in this priority are developing and transferring concepts to engage stakeholders in cooperation based on local knowledge, and supporting them to implement strategies for Northern Periphery and Arctic regions.

Consortium composition

Both main and small-scale projects under Priority 3 must involve partners from at least 3 programme partner countries, at least one of which is from an EU Member State.

Partnerships are also recommended to include at least 2 of the 3 geographical zones of the Programme area: Finland/Sweden/Norway; Ireland; Faroe Islands/Greenland/Iceland.

Lead Partners have to be a public sector organisation, based in the NPA Programme area; unless they have a national remit that covers the Programme Area.
