Who can apply for funding?
Only entities registered in the six countries with this programme can apply. Eligible applicants are defined in the call for proposals. These may include legal and courts administrations.
How can I get involved as a partner?
Pooling expertise helps tackle shared challenges. To strengthen cooperation and knowledge exchange, partnerships between entities in the donor and beneficiary countries in projects are encouraged. Funding is available to support networking and foster project partnerships.
The Norwegian Courts Administration is involved as a donor programme partner in Lithuania, Poland and Romania, with the Council of Europe also cooperating with the Bulgarian, Czech and Romanian authorities. These organisations play a strategic role in programme planning and implementation, and can assist donor entities who wish to get involved as partners.
