2019 Has been one more year of our OMS (Online Monitoring System) supporting the work of the North Sea Region Progreamme. Three separate calls led to the approval of 8 new projects in Call 9, 10 expressions of interest in Call 10, and five more projects among 9 full applications submitted in Call 11.
Call 9 saw €17.8 million being allocated to the new projects, including €16.8 million in ERDF funding and €980,000 in Norwegian funding. A further €8.8 million was allocated to the new projects of Call 11, including €8.3 million in ERDF funding and €489,000 in Norwegian funding. In addition, a new feature on our OMS allowed the submission of extensions to existing of projects, leading to 4 such approvals and approximately €2.8 million of ERDF funding allocated to them.
Our OMS facilitated the evaluation and online voting procedure for all 3 calls of applications and extensions. The partnerships behind the approved expressions of interest may now move on to the next step and prepare a full application for Call 11. Congratulations to all new projects, we are looking forward to supporting the implementations of your plans!

A FEW WORDS ABOUT NSRP 2014 - 2020
The North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020 builds on knowledge and experience generated in previous programming periods since the year 2000. NSRP facilitates transnational cooperation between 49 regions in seven countries by the North Sea. With a budget of 167 million euros, NSRP manage projects with a particular focus on pilots, demonstrations and trials. Projects typically explore how organisations can work better, often together, for the long-term. Although cutting edge technology is important, the programme is also focusing in work to develop and test new organisational structures, support networks and innovative practices.
