The purpose of the scoping study, commissioned by the Joint Secretariat and the Programme Preparation Group of the Interreg North Sea Region Programme 2021-2027, has been to provide analytical support for the design of the coming programme.

This includes an analysis of how the achievements and lessons learned during the 2014-2020 programme period and the recommendations for future thematic concentration made by the EU Commission fit with national and regional policies in the NSR. The scoping study has contributed to the process of finalising the focus of policy objectives in the NSR Programme 2021-2027. The scoping study has been carried out using a combination of desk research, qualitative interviews and quantitative (geographic information system, GIS) mapping.

The scoping study has been carried out in cooperation with Reeleaf and Nordregio.
