Exemplary actions:

  • Development, modification and testing of joint cross-border services connecting vocational and tertiary education graduates as well as employers in blue and green economy sectors (e.g. cross-border job search platforms, dedicated study profiles for blue and green sector companies, etc.).
  • Provision of cross-border training programmes (e.g. in language and cross-cultural skills) and qualification courses for the labour force, including tertiary and vocational education graduates, to suit employment needs in blue and green economy sectors.
  • Provision of tools or schemes for better harmonisation and international recognition of professional or vocational qualifications in blue and green economy sectors.
  • Preparation and deployment of cross-border internships, apprenticeships and different forms of exchanges for the labour force aimed at acquiring qualifications necessary for blue and green sector professions in the South Baltic Programme (SBP) regions.
  • Joint development of models and solutions supporting self-employment of university and college graduates in blue and green economy sectors.
  • Transfer of knowledge and exchange of experience to improve efforts of labour market stakeholders in stimulating employment in blue and green economy sectors of the South Baltic area.
  • Information and advisory services for potential cross-border workers on legal requirements and working conditions in other countries of the South Baltic region.


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 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.
