In the Spring of 2020, the preparations for the NPA 2021-2027 started under the guidance of the Programme Planning Group (PPG). The programming process has now reached an advanced stage where draft Priorities for the forthcoming NPA 2021-2027 have been designed along with the corresponding Specific Objectives and type of actions that can be funded by the future programme.

These Priorities will become part of the NPA 2021-2027 programme document, which is planned to be ready by June 2021, when a national and European approval process is expected to start.  

The NPA programme has a tradition of involving regional and project stakeholders in the drafting process, to ensure that the programme’s approach is rooted in the needs of the programme area.  

For this reason, the programme invited feedback on the draft Priorities via three consultation workshops “Shape the Future NPA”.

Each workshop focused on one draft Priority which was presented in detail, and participants could ask questions and provide feedback.
