The North Sea Region - home of game-changing ideas
We support transnational projects that address core challenges in the region and build on regional strengths.
With a portfolio of €167 million, we provide crucial funding to foster a vibrant, resilient future for the North Sea Region's 60+ million citizens and realise European agendas such as the EU Green Deal.
Innovative thinking and scalable solutions are important in every project we fund. Most projects deliver pilots and trials providing the evidence base for further uptake. Cutting-edge technology and capacity building are key features of many projects, too.
Four thematic priorities
We focus on four themes that are relevant and pressing in the region. Our projects cover a broad range of topics, from smart specialisation to climate adaptation. Click on the icons below to learn about each priority theme and what it covers.
