Projects selected: Helping young Europeans find work


Almost 14 million young people in Europe are not in employment, education or training. The EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment supports the most vulnerable and hard-to-reach among them and aim to help them into the labour market. 

Joining forces to promote human rights


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.
