Process and timeline
The process of programme development involves regular meetings in the Programme Preparation Group (PPG). The PPG leads the development of the new programme and includes delegates from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
The PPG takes all formal decisions on behalf of the member countries. They do so based on applicable EU regulations, background papers, stakeholder inputs, and national priorities.
Below is a simplified outline of the process. Please note that all future parts of the timeline are tentative and may change.
