With this call for proposals the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation recognises regional cross-border and transnational cooperation as a key driver to find shared solutions to common challenges.
Funding will be allocated to support inclusive dialogue and the strengthening of transnational/regional networks, knowledge sharing and policy exchange to accelerate innovation; job creation; the development of sustainable cooperation structures between the business sector, public sector, civil sector and academia; and engagements contributing to and enhancing effectiveness and efficiency in policy development and responses to common European challenges.
Within this call for proposals, regional cross-border and transnational project ideas focusing on soft measures like knowledge-sharing, the exchange of good practice and capacity building within all priority areas of the EEA and Norway Grants will be considered for funding.
The five priority sectors of the EEA and Norway Grants:
- Innovation, Research, Education and Competitiveness;
- Social Inclusion, Youth Employment and Poverty Reduction;
- Environment, Energy, Climate Change and Low Carbon Economy;
- Culture, Civil Society, Good Governance and Fundamental Rights and Freedoms;
