The North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020 builds on knowledge and experience generated in previous programming periods since the year 2000.
In 2013, a Programme Preparation Group consistsing of representatives from the seven North Sea Region countries participating in the 2007 – 2013 Programme started drafting the Cooperation Programme for 2014 – 2020.
As part of the process, two public consultations were carried out among stakeholders to collect their views on the needs and potential of the region.
The final draft of the Cooperation Programme, as well as Strategic Environmental Assessment and ex-ante evaluation documents, were submitted to the European Commission for approval in late October 2014. The Cooperation Programme was finally adopted by the European Commission in August 2015.
