COVID-19: Information to project promoters and partners

The global health crisis that is affecting Europe is impacting the EEA and Norway Grants. The COVID-19 and the measures implemented across Europe to halt the spread of the virus are impacting both the projects funded by the Grants and the people involved in the project implementation.

Prolongation of projects

The EEA and Norway Grants acknowledge that many project promoters and partners are in a challenging situation and may need to postpone or cancel activities. Changes in the project implementation period must be consulted with the Programme/Fund Operator. We encourage all projects to consider alternative solutions to implementing the activity, such as online platforms, before cancelling.

Eligibility of expenditures linked to non-execution of activities due to Corona virus

Expenditure for an activity that cannot be executed due to unforeseeable circumstances and exceptional situations caused by the Coronavirus developments which are beyond the control of the beneficiary, may still be eligible, if the related costs could not have been avoided or recovered by any form of insurance. Please consult the Programme/Fund Operator for more information if your project has been affected by the situation.
