To support the implementation of macro-regional and sea-basin strategies, the NPA Monitoring Committee is encouraging clustering activities between ongoing projects.
Clustering activities can take place between projects from different Arctic programmes dealing with the same theme or projects that are addressing the same territorial challenges. The cooperation has to take place between projects funded by different cooperation programmes and the objective is to ensure better implementation of the cooperating projects, more efficient use of the funding, better results and wider dissemination of the results.
The clustering activities shall contribute to the implementation of EU’s Macro Regional and Sea Basin strategies, the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the Action Plan for a Maritime Strategy for the Atlantic, or to the EU Arctic Communication, An integrated European Union policy for the Arctic.
The second clustering call is open between 1st December and 30th April 2019.
