The Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020 finances result orientated cross-border cooperation projects in Estonia, Finland (incl Åland), Latvia and Sweden

Specific Objective 1.2

More entrepreneurial youth

This specific objective aims to use the potential of the young generation to make the Central Baltic region more entrepreneurial and competitive in the coming years. Joint Central Baltic activities will be based on good experience supporting youth entrepreneurship and attracting young people to engage into cross-border and international activities.

Joint activities aim to motivate young people to establish student companies and create international teams, which can serve as a basis for future business partnerships within the Central Baltic region. The experience from international cooperation acquired is seen as a great benefit for young people even if the team will not become or stay joint after the project activities.
