Interreg V-B: Transnational co-operation

A network of partners from six European countries, working together to raise the profile of the North Sea Region as a hub for production and post-production across all kinds of media - film, TV, games, commercials, advertising, print, web, mobile and more.

The North Sea Screen Partnership was set up to tap into the potential of the creative industries in order to promote innovation and growth in the North Sea Region and increase the region's competitiveness in a global context. Transnational cooperation was concentrated on common challenges, such as marketing, financing and SME support. The project aimed to tackle issues such as fragmented national markets inhibiting critical mass creation (developing economies of scale), lack of coherence and coordination of actors and actions across the North Sea Region, and loss of talents in more peripheral areas.
