Programme summary

Programme Concerns

A maximum level of funding available from the total eligible expenditure of the programme for infrastructure (hard measures) shall be identified in the concept note.

Measures implemented under this programme shall also address broader gender equality issues, e.g. through education and awareness-raising, institutional support and capacity development for women''s and equality organisations including NGOs, targeted measures and services for work-life balance as well as the specific needs of vulnerable groups such as Roma.

Providing support to the Coordination Methodological Centre (CMC), building on the pre-defined project implemented under the SK09 programme (2009-2014) by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family of the Slovak Republic, in partnership with the Council of Europe and the Norwegian Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies (NKVTS), as a pre-defined project, shall be considered.

The programme shall build on the results achieved by the SK09 programme under the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014, with the aim of providing systematic support to victims of domestic and gender-based violence in line with the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence. The supported projects shall contribute to the provision of quality services by public entities as well as NGOs for victims of domestic and gender-based violence, especially vulnerable groups, including children, primarily through the support to shelters and counselling services.

The relevant public institution(s) in the Slovak Republic in charge of the policy area in question, including the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family, shall be actively involved in the preparation and implementation of the programme, specifically as member(s) of the Cooperation Committee.

Bilateral Ambitions

€ 75,000 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.
