The Swedish Institute invites Swedish organisations to submit applications for seed funding under the framework for collaboration in the Baltic Sea region. The project activities that the Swedish Institute supports must be aimed at developing conditions for long-lasting sustainable relations between organisations in the Baltic Sea region. The basis of activities for developing relations is the meeting between individuals and organisations whose aim is to support and stimulate the development of mutual and sustainable relations, partnerships and alliances. The projects are to be based on a clear needs analysis and take an innovative approach in the region – for instance, this could involve collaboration in new constellations, with new methods or on a new theme. Seed funding is intended to be used to start new collaborations or expand existing ones in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, and in some cases in Moldova and Georgia.
