An exciting leap into 2020

13 January 2020 - Published by Lise Espersen

A well-rested team returned to the office last week ready to steam ahead with a wide range of exciting tasks. 

A new programme 2021-2027

Work is now underway for the preparation of a new programme for the 2021- 2027 period. The Programme Preparation Group (PPG) will meet again for the second time in February and we are busy preparing for this meeting. The Group will discuss a wide range of programming issues, including the structure of the new Programme and vital consultations with Programme stakeholders.

Focus on capitalisation

Whilst the future is high on the agenda, the here and now remain a top priority.  Support continues for all of our 73 existing projects and with a number of these projects nearing their middle or final phases we are focusing on a capitalisation approach; pooling together, highlighting and presenting project achievements at every given opportunity.  

North Sea Conference 

Planning for the North Sea Conference in Rotterdam during the week 22-26 June is in full swing and it is anticipated that exact dates and venue will be revealed within the next couple of weeks. As in previous years, a video contest will be held in conjunction with the Conference and we have high expectations for this given the entries from 2019! Stay tuned for more information about this.
