In addition to regular and small-scale cross-border cooperation projects, the Monitoring Committee may decide to co-finance strategic projects under this measure, i.e. projects that have a tangible impact on a significant part of the South Baltic Programme (SBP) area. Furthermore, there may be support for seed money activities, defined as drafting activities for a project concept which can be further developed into an application to the SBP.
