Call 4 in facts and figures

29 August 2017 - Published by Anne Sofie Forfang
At the closure of Call 4, applicants had submitted 41 expressions of interest that are now going into review.

Call 4 demonstrated a continued high level of interest in obtaining co-funding from the North Sea Region Programme. The submitted expressions of interest are now undergoing a thorough review to determine if they qualify for entering the next stage of developing a full application. 


Strong interest in eco-innovation and resource efficiency

In this call, Priority 2 (Eco-innovation and resource efficiency) received the largest number of applications (17), whilst only three expressions of interest fall into the Priority 3 (Sustainable NSR). Priority 1 (Thinking growth) and priority 4 (Green transport) received 11 and 10 expressions of interest, respectively. 


Geographic distribution of lead applicants

Whilst lead applicants applying in Call 4 are found across the entire North Sea Region, most were based in the  Netherlands,  followed by Germany and Norway. 



The next steps

The expressions of interest are now undergoing review, and our Steering Committee will make final decisions in November 2017. Applicants of approved expressions of interest will be invited to develop a full application under Call 5, open 29 December 2017 - 5 March 2018.  

In January 2018, the Secretariat will organise an Interwork Event supporting applicants in developing their project concept.
