Programme Concerns

Cooperation with Norwegian entities and international organisations at project level shall be encouraged.

The programme shall include a scholarship component, organised as a small grant scheme. The scholarship component shall support student and staff mobility in higher education and vocational training. Management of the small grant scheme may be subcontracted to the Centre of the Republic of Slovenia for Mobility and European Educational and Training Programmes (CMEPIUS).

The programme shall support, inter alia: Pilots and models for developing systematic solutions in enhancing competences of teachers, professors and other academic staff; Improved cooperation of stakeholders on local, regional and national level; Measures for easing the transition of pupils from schools to the labour market; Measures to improve work-life balance, with an emphasis on women’s economic empowerment.

Bilateral Ambitions

€50,000 shall be allocated to the programme from the fund for bilateral relations. This does not prevent the Joint Committee for Bilateral Funds from allocating additional funds to the programme.
