With support from Norway through the Norway Grants, 60 young people from Slovakia, Ukraine and Norway crossed the Slovak – Ukrainian border together on bikes in mid-August.
Some of Europe’s poorest regions straddle the EU’s Eastern border. These regions face a number of shared challenges, from trans-boundary river pollution to public health issues and organised crime.
Building on efforts in the previous funding period, Norway supports one programme on cross-border cooperation in Slovakia. This programme aims to enhance knowledge transfer and learning between local and regional bodies in Slovakia and Ukraine, as well as civil society groups.
Read about the programme in each country to find out what activities are funded, how to apply, or how to get involved as a partner.
Funding is available for entities registered in Slovakia, as the sole beneficiary country with this programme. These may include local and regional authorities, as well as NGOs.
Given its experience in cross-border work, the Norwegian Barents Secretariat is involved as a donor programme partner in Slovakia. It can assist Norwegian entities who wish to get involved as partners.
Project partnerships between entities in the donor and beneficiary countries are also encouraged.
