These programmes contribute to strengthen education systems through international cooperation and facilitate student and staff exchanges with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Project support is available to applicants in the 11 beneficiary countries. Eligible applicants are institutions in these countries. Scholarships for mobility will also be open for individuals such as students and staff, who can apply through their institution.
The Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education, the Icelandic Centre for Research and the Liechtenstein National Agency for International Education Affairs are all involved as programme partners. These organisations can assist donor state entities who wish to get involved as partners.
