The second Match Meeting of the South Baltic Programme took place in Bornholm on 16-17 June 2009. More than 100 participants from different EU countries gathered together to discuss and develop pipe-line projects, find project partners and receive practical information about the South Baltic Programme and the upcoming calls for proposals (third call: 15 July – 30 September 2009 and fourth call: 1 April 2010 - 21 May 2010).

The second Match Meeting was officially opened by Mr Bjarne Kristiansen, Mayor of Bornholm. The participants had an opportunity to learn more about the latest developments of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region presented by Mr Andreas Lindholm, European Commission, DG REGIO. The day continued with general presentation of the South Baltic Programme as well as with presentation on thematic measures of the Programme. A speed dating exercise was organized facilitating contacts between different groups of participants which were then further strengthened during other activities of the day. 7 Programme measure workshops were held where different project ideas were presented and feedback from experts/JTS was received. The participants also heard practical tips on project development from a successful applicant  - INTERFACE project approved during the 2nd call for proposals as well as practical information from the JTS on submitting the application for the third call. The programme of the first day of the Match Meeting also included the visit to NaturBornholm, an amazing interactive experience centre bringing the unique nature of Bornholm alive. The evening was hosted by the Regional Municipality of Bornholm and included performance of the Symphony Orchestra from Bornholm Music School as well as “Get together” dinner with cultural activities forming the South Baltic identity.

New partnerships established during the first day of the MM were further strengthened during the second day in the Project Bazaar (facilitated by Contact Points of the Programme) where different projects presented their ideas and searched for relevant partners. In parallel with the Bazaar, Individual Project Consultations were organized with the JTS providing concrete advises to the development of project applications.

It is expected that the second Match Meeting will result in high quality projects to be implemented within the South Baltic Programme in upcoming calls.
