If you look at the statistics, the North Sea Region is a great place to live and work. Educational attainment is high, health systems are robust and society is relatively prosperous. But the region’s stability and long-term prosperity depends on finding answers to some big questions.

What can be done to stimulate sustainable, economic growth? How must society adjust to climate change, especially more frequent major flooding? And are there ways to clean up our environment and manage resources more wisely?

Our overall aim is to support development and foster sustained economic growth across the region. We help enterprises, institutions, public administrations, NGOs and others to pool their expertise, share their experience and cooperate to develop realistic solutions to problems shared by organisations across the region.

With a budget of 167 million euros, we manage projects with a particular focus on pilots, demonstrations and trials. Projects typically explore how organisations can work better, often together, for the long-term. Although cutting edge technology is important, we are just as interested in work to develop and test new organisational structures, support networks and innovative practices.

We focus on four themes that are most relevant and pressing across the region.

1. Thinking growth

2. Eco-innovation

3. Sustainable North Sea Region

4. Green transport and mobility
