The REACT-EU initiative for dealing with the results of the COVID-19 crisis provided additional budget for the ERDF programme Baden-Württemberg 2014-2020. The programme implemented this budget via a new priority axis, which mirrored the specific objectives and measures of the existing programme.
ÖIR was responsible for ensuring compliance of the changed ERDF programme with the existing SEA, respectively identifying the need for amending the existing SEA. The screening was conducted by comparing the new priority axis implemented and its measures with the measures already checked for the existing programme. The compliance was verified based on the criteria defined by the German law on SEA/EIA.
