Full title in national language:

Presentation of the measure:

A scoping study for the programming of the Interreg North Sea Region Programme for the period 2021-2027 presents new action lines, based on an analysis of how the achievements and lessons learned during the current programme period and the recommendations for future thematic concentration made by the EU Commission fit with national and regional policies in the NSR.

Overall, the study demonstrates a strong stakeholder support as well as a solid foundation to further develop transnational collaboration focusing on PO1: A smarter Europe and PO2: A greener, low-carbon Europe. Only Germany explicitly wishes to include PO3: A more connected Europe in the NSR Programme. Stakeholders do not find there is added value in including PO4: A more social Europe in the NSR Programme. For PO5: A Europe closer to citizens, there is some uncertainty to the added value of including it as a separate PO in the NSR Programme. Stakeholders point to possibilities to incorporate elements such as citizens involvement under PO1 and PO2.

Policy learning
To what extent the measure can be considered as a success and worthy of policy learning?:
It is too early to judge the success of the measure (e.g results of first call for proposals still not known).
Evidence of outcomes based on evaluation and other evidence:

There is no evaluation for the upcoming period yet. Evaluations of previous Interreg NSR programmes were however positive.

What are the most important “Do’s and Don’ts” that regional stakeholders should be aware of when launching a similar measure?:

Not available.

Would you recommend this measure as an example of regional good practice to policy-makers from other regions ?:
