Working together

The EEA and Norway Grants contribute to strengthening contact and cooperation between Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and the 15 beneficiary countries. Bilateral partnerships between public and private institutions, NGOs and research institutions in the donor and beneficiary countries are facilitated and supported at all levels. All programmes have funds set aside to facilitate such cooperation.

Most of the funding from the 09-14 programming period has been allocated. New funds from the 14-21 programming period will gradually become available from 2017, depending on the status of negotiations with each of the beneficiary countries.

All project proposals need to be submitted through official calls for proposals. You will find a full list of ongoing calls in the calls overview.

Opportunities by country

In addition to programme and project support, funding is available in each country for developing bilateral cooperation and activities of bilateral interest with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Donor programme partners

In more than half of the programmes, public bodies from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway are involved as strategic advisers to the programme operators.

These public bodies take part in the programme planning and implementation, and they also help facilitate project partnerships.
