The Central Baltic programme's Monitoring Committee met last week on 24-25 May. Among the topics were the current state of the programme, the Annual Implementation Report and steps after the third call.

It was concluded that the programme is running smoothly and according to plan. This was reflected in the update given by the JS staff members as well as the Annual Implementation Report. The Monitoring Committee was well informed, involved and interested in programme developments.

Different approaches for spending potentially remaining funding after the third call were dicussed. A targeted call received strong support from everyone. Also the idea of giving additional funds to the collaboration of projects beyond their current budgets or activity plans, was added to the list of suggestions to be further developed.

This discussion is continued internally in early autumn, when the first Steering Committee decisions have been made. The next Monitoring Committee meeting will be held on 14-15 November.
