Slovakia launches three calls seeking block grant intermediaries
Slovakia launched three calls for proposals on 7 October, seeking intermediaries for block grants for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), research and scholarships/schools to be set up as part of the implementation of the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism established by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
The successful applicants will have the administrative responsibility for the implementation of the three block grants – or funds – aimed at providing smaller grants to potential end-beneficiaries of the three funds.
The NGO fund has a financial framework of close to six million euros, and will provide financial assistance to NGOs within three priority sectors: promotion of sustainable development, human rights, and social issues. The research fund, totalling close to 2 million euros, will provide support to academic research and infrastructure serving the Slovak research community. The scholarship/schools fund will provide grants to scholarships and to support cooperation among schools within an overall financial framework of just above 1.5 million euros.
