The North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020 builds on knowledge and experience generated in previous programming periods since the year 2000. Aim of the programme is to support development and foster sustained economic growth across the region. NSR supports enterprises, institutions, public administrations, NGOs and others to pool their expertise, share their experience and cooperate to develop realistic solutions to problems shared by organisations across the region. NSR focuses on four themes that are most relevant and pressing across the region:
• Thinking Growth: Supporting growth in North Sea Region economies;
• Eco-innovation: Stimulating the green economy;
• Sustainable North Sea Region: Protecting against climate change and preserving the environment;
• Promoting green transport and mobility.
