The new programme is taking shape, and the member countries are gearing up to promote the funding opportunity. Here is a roundup of updates and upcoming events to keep you up to speed.

National Contact Points appointed in France

We are happy to introduce our new national Contact Points in France: Caroline Daessle and Caroline Gauthier. We are excited to involve our new French colleagues in the future programme.

Change in Priority 2

Important notification for future applicants in Priority 2 (a green transition in the North Sea Region): The structure of the specific objectives will change, based on feedback received from the European Commission. However, the topics will most likely remain the same.
