Welcome to dive in into the Three Seas Initiative (3SI) – a politically inspired, commercially driven platform for improving connectivity between twelve EU Member States allocated between Baltic, Adriatic and Black seas.


The Three Seas Initiative was born out of a shared interest in developing transport, energy and digital infrastructure connections on the EU’s north-south axis. Connections that must be trusted, sustainable and inclusive thus strengthening EU cohesion and enrich transatlantic links. 3SI aims to scale up region’s excellence EU-wide and globally. 3SI partners – the United States, Germany, and the European Commission – are closely involved in this process.

To improve regions connectivity and accelerate investments in infrastructure projects of the regions 3SI Investment Fund was set up in 2019. To know more about the 3SI projects we invite you to navigate through the list of priority projects.


"The Three Seas is a region of growth as our economies are growing faster than in the rest of Europe, and for this reason we aim to foster further development in the three key areas of the Initiative. High on 3SI Summit agenda was Ukraine’s involvement in the Initiative. The 3SI participating states unanimously supported Ukraine's struggle for sovereignty and freedom. With this 3SI Summit and Business Forum, we are starting close cooperation with Ukraine within the framework of the Three Seas Initiative. Looking forward to 3SI Summit and Business Forum in Romania next year!"
