Baltic Sea Region INTERREG III B Neighborhood Programme

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) INTERREG III B Neighborhood Programme belongs to one of the three strands of the European Community Initiative INTERREG III. These programmes address transnational co-operation and intend to encourage harmonious and balanced development of the European territory.

There are numerous networks, organizations and political initiatives linking up the Baltic Sea Region. They are actively contributing to building up joint development strategies. Subsequently, transnational INTERREG III B cooperation projects are based on concepts like the Second Northern Dimension Action Plan, VASAB 2010 strategies, as well as, for example, the programmes of HELCOM and Baltic 21.

The Baltic Sea Region's III B cooperation area includes eleven countries separated by numerous land and sea borders.

New visual identity guidelines for the cooperation programme with Russia (former Tacis).

New visual identity guidelines for the programs under the European Union, including Cooperation programme with Russia (former Tacis) have been adopted.

"The new guidelines have been drawn up to ensure that projects that are wholly or partially funded by the Europen Union (EU) visibly acknowledge the support of the EU. They are to be used in briefings, press conferences, presentations, invitations, signs......and all other items used to highlight EU participation......Contractors and/or implementing partners are responsible for giving adequate publicity to the project or programme that they are implementing and to the support from the EU."

And new contractors are required to follow them (they can be found on the website www.eur.ru under Tacis - How to work with Tacis?) - to be adapted). Please find here  a template for the stationary to be used by contractors. You will see the only requirement is that the contractor should not use any longer the Tacis logo, and have at the bottom of the page the EU logo with the sentence "This project is funded by the European Union under its Tacis Programme".

As regards business cards, they should also feature the EU logo and the above sentence. Of course they should also contain the name of the project etc. so that the person can not be confused with somebody working/representing directly for the EU
