New Electronic Application and Reporting System 

During the programme period 2021–2027, a new electronic application and reporting system, Jems (Joint Electronic Monitoring System), will be introduced. Two events will be held on the 15th (10:30-13:30) and 17th (13:00-16:00) of February respectively, to introduce Jems. 

After these events, applicants are expected to know how to register into Jems, understand the system’s logic, know how to fill in an application form and understand what to consider when applying for funding. Both events will be recorded, and the recordings will be uploaded to the Central Baltic Programme’s website.

The registration for the Jems-introduction events is open until 10am on Monday February 14th. A Zoom-link to the events will be sent with the registration confirmation.
