Actions are assigned to Programme-Part "Sustainable North Sea Region".
Adapting to climate change is a key challenge for the whole North Sea Region. It is clear that there are already significant negative effects in the programme area and that they need to be managed. Transnational cooperation provides opportunities for:
- Sharing knowledge on the latest methods.
- Joint work on designing improved infrastructure and procedures.
- Developing new solutions to tackle emerging threats.
For further information please consult the cooperation programme (pp. 67-68). Additional information on speific types of projects e.g. testing and training, investment and pilot action, best practice, new models, strategies and so forth are available on pp. 22-24.
Comprehensive Information on the application assessment process is available under the following Link.

- The extent to which the partnership can influence development in the wider programme area (i.e. not just a local effect).
- The overall balance of the partnership in terms of geography, expertise and competence (are the participating organisations able to influence the theme?).
- The ability of the partners to live up to the formal requirements for the programme.
