Why does the North Sea Programme exist? Here is the answer, captured in 115 seconds. 

At the North Sea Conference last month, participants learned about megatrends in relation to the post-2027 Cohesion Policy. Development traps, just transitions, new technology such as AI and blockchain, and citizen engagement are some of the key aspects. So, does the North Sea Programme 2021-2027 step up to these challenges?

The answer is a resounding yes. We deliver solutions that are in high demand, from green transitions involving citizens to rural-urban connections, using smart technologies and innovative approaches. And above all, we create the future by means of the greatest superpower of all: Working together across borders.

In the video below, our Head of Secretariat Christian Byrith and European Commission Desk Officer Miguel Avila explain the cornerstones of our programme in less than 2 minutes.
