About the Norwegian Barents Secretariat
The Barents Secretariat engages widely in cross-border cooperation in the Barents Region, first of all as a project grant manager and news information provider. The organisation is owned by the three northern counties of Norway and it works closely with authorities and the NGO sector in all four countries in the Barents Region; Norway, Russia, Finland and Sweden.
The engagement as donor programme partner gives the Barents Secretariat a unique opportunity to widen its cooperation with EU partners and strengthen its expertise in the field of cross-border cooperation. The Secretariat sees its donor programme partnership engagement as an opportunity to share its own experiences and to get valuable learning from other border regions, as well as a way to engage in new cross-border initiatives.
The Barents Secretariat seeks to facilitate exchange of knowledge, experiences and best practices between European border regions, and sees this exchange as vital for the handling of common challenges in European cross-border affairs.
