This page will be updated when more details about Call 3 become available. 

Do you have a great idea to tackle a common challenge in the North Sea region? Do you have a team ready that can hit the ground running?

Then we invite you to join the third call in the 2021-2027 North Sea Programme. 

The programme welcomes applications for regular and small-scale projects.  For regular projects, full applications must be based on an approved expression of interest or a previously rejected full application. 

Priority 2 overwhelming interest

In the first two calls, interest for funding in Priority 2 (Green Transitions) has been especially intense. At present, it is unclear how much funding will be available in Priority 2 for Call 3 applications. More will be known following the decisions to be made on Call 2 applications (12-13 April).

Learn more about our priorities


If you are contemplating applying in Priority 2, it might be worth considering how your project idea might fit under another priority. Feel free to get in touch with us to discuss these options.
