Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013

BALTIC BIRD is part-financed by the European Union within the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013. The Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 is a transnational cooperation programme partly financed by the European Union and Norway. It is one of the mainstream Structural Funds programmes under the European Community’s territorial cooperation objective. The Programme supports transnational projects working together to make the Baltic Sea region an attractive place to invest, work and live in.

The programme runs from 2007 to 2013, and has a budget of 236 million euro. Partners from 11 countries around the Baltic Sea work together to find joint solutions to common problems.

The Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 is the only European programme where Structural Funds, Norwegian funds and European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI) are integrated.
