In view of the preparation of the Interreg NEXT Black Sea Basin Programme, a Territorial Analysis for the eligible area has been prepared and the outcome was discussed during the meeting in December of the Joint Programming Committee (JPC).
The decision was to launch a 1st round of public consultations with the stakeholders in order to validate the preliminary conclusions regarding the Policy Objectives and Interreg Specific Objectives revealed as relevant to be supported.
Therefore, the consultations are now open and the stakeholders are invited to provide their opinions by filling in a questionnaire, which can be accessed at the following link https://blacksea-cbc.net/interreg-next-bsb-2021-2027/have-your-say-on-the-interreg-next-black-sea-basin-programme-2021-2027/
