South-East Finland – Russia CBC financial frame fully allocated for 71 projects

The South-East Finland – Russia CBC 2014-2020 Programme has reached one important milestone in its implementation. The Managing Authority of the Programme has signed Grant Contract with the last of the awarded projects in March 2021. In total, 62 standard cross-border cooperation development projects selected through the continuous open call for proposals were launched. The total package of SEFR CBC projects is complemented by 9 large infrastructure projects (LIP), which were identified already in the programming phase and funded by direct awards. Total funding for these 71 projects is EUR 70,3 Mio. Projects may receive Programme’s financing for maximum of 80 % of their eligible costs.  

To get information of the funded projects, their partnerships and main activities, and the overall picture as in Programme allocations summary, go to sub-site INFORMATION SERVICE. On the landing page we offer open spread-sheet data file of all the funded projects (in accordance with the Implementing Regulation EU 897/2014, Article 44) as well as the card of each project with the link that opens the project portfolio, and links directing to the project’s website and social media accounts. Some of the projects are relatively new and their information shall be completed later.  

As the next step, we start cumulative collection of the final verified outputs and results of the funded projects. Data is collected and recorded by the closure of each project. The outcomes of this work shall be also communicated to the Programme’s target audiences and new information services shall be released accordingly.  

Information of the projects is made available on the English, Finnish and Russian sub-sites.
