Pitch & Network sessions June 2021

We organised a series of four pitch & network sessions - one for each priority - to allow project developers to present their ideas to their peers. 

North Sea Conference 2020

Due to Covid-19, the North Sea Conference 2020 was postponed and eventually turned into a virtual event. The conference was all about the future: The North Sea Commission presented its 2030 strategy and the conference included workshops where delegates could discuss the future North Sea Region Programme. 

State of Play webinar  

On 10 September 2020, we hosted a webinar presenting the current state of play of programme development, including preliminary outcomes of the public stakeholder consultation. The webinar was fully booked and participants had the chance to ask questions about the process.
