Interreg South Baltic Programme seeks to stronger involve local, regional & non-governmental stakeholders as well as academia in the programming process. Euroregion Baltic, a Lead Partner of the ”Umbrella – Boosting cross-border cooperation capacities of local actors in the South Baltic Sea” project decided to become an active part of this process.
Below you can find all 7 Umbrella promo video clips summarising the project that we prepared for the final conference. We asked our project beneficiaries and Umbrella partners to give their comments on the activities and outcomes of our project. Enjoy!
The Umbrella project was meant to be exactly that – an umbrella to gather other projects and a way to connect people through cross-border projects. It was aimed at newcomers who had not yet been involved in projects in the South Baltic Programme. These included small local and regional organisations with an interest in developing a South Baltic identity.
Dear Umbrella’s beneficiary,
On behalf of the Association of Polish Communes Euroregion Baltic as Lead Partner of
Umbrella Project and on behalf of the whole project partnership, we would like to invite you to
our final conference. Three years have passed since Umbrella was approved by INTERREG
South Baltic Programme and launched by the partnership.
This project was needed since research showed that the South Baltic Programme was still
poorly available to small organizations because of insufficient institutional or financial
capacities, communication barriers, lack of English language skills, lack of competencies
and capacities for project development and implementation.
What observed in the frame of the South Baltic Programme could be generalized also for
other European grants and other local cross-border cooperation opportunities in the South
Baltic Sea area.
The overall objective of the project was to initiate a process of the capacity building involving
small municipalities, NGOs and other local/ regional organizations in order to transfer them
knowledge and capacities, and to include them in the current cross-border cooperation
networks. Today we can finally state that we’ve achieved over expected results and we would
like to share them with you.
