    Welcome to the Interreg V-A Latvia–Lithuania Programme 2014–2020!

When 2 + 2 = 100 …

29 August 2018

Latvia and Lithuania are currently implementing an ambitious, more than half a million euros project “Creation of a synergy platform for the public security in the Latvian and Lithuanian Eastern border territories” involving Latvian and Lithuanian law enforcement agencies – Police and Border Guard, as well as four municipalities located at the intersection of strategic roads between Latvia and Belarus and Latvian-Russian borders. “Intelligent” CCTV cameras, border guards and policing equipment, investments in the training of security staff – all this will bring results. However, the concept of synergy in the project title has not been chosen by chance. Synergy is not just a word. What is synergy? Mathematically it might look surprising: 2 + 2 = 5, or maybe 50 or even 100. The definition of synergy is the result is bigger than the sum of the contribution of all the parties involved. In other words, sometimes 1+1 doesn’t equal 2 but 5. The security structures of the two neighboring countries and the involved municipalities are able to accomplish a great deal, but more than enough can be achieved through the involvement and active participation of all citizens of the border municipalities. Therefore, we invite everyone living at the border – do not be indifferent! Look and speak!

Budget: 580 236,21 EUR

85% ERDF funding, 15% national co-financing (incl. state co-financing – 5% in LV, 7,5% in LT)

Duration: 24 MONTHS (May 17, 2017-November 16, 2019)
