Six national Central Baltic Contact Points at your service

Friday, January 16, 2015 - 08:49
The network of national Central Baltic Contact Points in the programme countries is now complete with the sixth Contact Point being set up in Tallinn at the beginning of the year. The Contact Point network has been established to support the work of the Joint Secretariat and the Managing Authority in the programme countries as well as to serve as an information source about the Central Baltic Programme in the programme countries. Each Contact Point has an Information Officer working as a national information source of the programme in the country.

What services do the Contact Points offer?

The national Contact Points are hosted by local organizations. The Information Officers in the Contact Points deliver information about the programme to the regions in their country and from the regions to the programme, with the aim of activating the potential project partners and creating cross-border cooperation in the whole programme area. They help in identifying whether project ideas fit to the Central Baltic Programme, and assist in partner search by providing information about the potential partners in the country they are located in. If you have questions about the programme or need more information about it to deliver to your networks and stakeholders, the Contact Point is a good place to start the journey. Welcome to be in touch by phone, e-mail or visiting!

Where to find them?

The Contact Points are located in Helsinki (Finland), Mariehamn (Åland), Stockholm and Norrköping (Sweden), Tallinn (Estonia) and Riga (Latvia). All contact information can be found here.
