Latvian human resource projects approved

13 projects have been approved in the second and last open call of the Latvian fund for human resource development. With support from Norway Grants, the fund helps to build institutional and organisational capacity in Latvia.

The approved projects will be executed in a number of areas, including protection of the environment, sustainable development, preservation of European cultural heritage, human resource development and education, the judiciary, health care and regional development.

The "Short Term Expert Fund" is managed by the State Regional Development Agency in Latvia. Through the funding from the Norway Grants, the fund has made a total of more than €1 million available to projects developing human resources in the Latvian public sector. Some €500,000 has been made available to projects in this call. Projects submitted by state and local authorities as well as foundations and associations were among those approved.
Strengthening administrative capacity in the beneficiary states is a significant objective for the EEA and Norway Grants. The overall aim of the "Short Term Expert Fund" is to increase efficiency, capacity and performance of services within public sector institutions and organisations, as well as furthering the practice of good government principles in general. Exchange of knowledge, experience, information and good practice between Latvia and Norway and other EEA states contribute to this end.
