Introduction to the Operations of Strategic Importance (OSI)

Introduction to the Operations of Strategic Importance (OSI)


We are currently working on our 2nd Call for Proposals of the 2021-2027 programming period, which will be dedicated to a new kind of projects, called Operations of Strategic Importance (OSI). According to the indicative timeline approved by the Monitoring Commitee last November 23rd 2023, this Call will be launched by Autumn this year

We set up a dedicated OSI Working Group made of the representatives of Italian Regions and Croatian Counties, led by the MA and JS. In order to identify the strategic themes to be included in the Call for Proposals we have also involved some external experts.

If you want to know more, check the brief resume we prepared about what OSIs are in the attached document.

To involve key Programme partners and citizens in the Programme implementation and particularly in this Call for Proposals – in accordance with Art. 8(2) of the CPR (EU) 2021/1060 - we organised an on-line public cross-border Consultation on April 4th 2024. 

We had over 130 participants, who helped us understand how well the objectives defined for each Specific Objective (SO) by the OSI Working Group align with the real needs of the territory and to investigate operational aspects for the Call for Proposals.

We addressed different target groups, particularly: 

  • general public
  • specific groups of stakeholders
  • young people, according to the EU Youth Strategy
  • other Programmes of the Area (e.g. Interreg ADRION, Interreg Italy-Slovenia, and Interreg IPA South Adriatic) with a view to synergy and complementarity
  • EUSAIR representatives
