A higher degree of effectiveness was sought through the various themes of the programme. In order to achieve this, regionally important themes were selected for the programme implementation, and the calls for proposals were based on these themes.
The first call for proposals was opened on February 2010 under a theme Cross-border solutions for sustainable spatial, economic and environmental development. The second call was opened under a theme Tourism cooperation in spring 2011 and the third call, Forest based cooperation and sustainable energy solutions, in autumn 2011. The calls for proposals concentrated on Cultural cooperation, Social wellbeing and Sustainable exploitation of natural resources closed on August 2012.
