Project stories, news and features
Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway have announced a new fund that supports regional cross-border and transnational projects proposing shared solutions to Europe’s common challenges. Funding is available within all priority sectors of the EEA and Norway Grants.
The Financial Mechanism Office – the secretariat of the EEA and Norway Grants – is seeking a Fund Operator to develop and implement the EEA Grants programme for civil society in Romania 2014-2021 (the ‘Active Citizens Fund’). This is the invitation to bid.
The Grants are cooperating with the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) to promote human rights in Europe. A new agreement paves the way for involvement of FRA in our programmes linked to Roma inclusion and empowerment.
