Growing Together – the South Baltic Programme at the Baltic Sea Days 2014 in Turku

Held between 1 and 5 June 2014 and attended by more than 1000 stakeholders, this year’s Baltic Sea Days in Turku were driven by the motto “growing together”, putting the need for better cooperation into spotlight. As stressed during the opening session of the Baltic Development Forum, new joint efforts are required to fight the risk of the region’s long-term economic slowdown. In particular, clusters and regional value chains need to be strengthened to fully exploit the growth potential of the region’s assets: LNG, biogas, ICT, digital and maritime technologies. Looking at the Baltic Sea Strategy, EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn called for stronger ownership, thematic concentration and better governance to boost the results orientation of the Strategy. While acknowledging the contribution of local and regional actors to the implementation of the Strategy’s Action Plan, he thus reminded the audience about the significance of multi-level governance to “get things done”. 

As one of the funding instruments serving these aims, the South Baltic Programme thus also decided to take an active role in this year’s conference agenda. Joining forces with the Central Baltic Programme, the promotional stand of both programmes at the networking village invited the conference participants to learn more about the results achieved by the first generation of South and Central Baltic cross-border cooperation projects. Together with the Baltic Sea Region and Central Baltic Programmes, the Joint Technical Secretariat furthermore took the floor at the joint workshop “INTERREG funding opportunities for 2014-2020”. Moderated by Ms Susanne Scherrer, Head of the MA/JTS of the Baltic Sea Region Programme, and attended by more than 120 stakeholders, the workshop allowed for a comparison of the priorities chosen by the three programmes for the next programming period.  At the same time, stressing the evolutionary rather than revolutionary character of the programmes' changes, the panellists underlined two common key features: (1) the aim of better results orientation and (2), the importance of getting the right partners on board when designing the projects.
