  • What is supported? The call will support projects intended to strengthen co-operation between law enforcement agencies to prevent, detect and combat organised crime through improving access for law enforcement officers to modern technologies and training, as well as through strengthening co-operation between national and international law enforcement authorities (i.e Europol, Interpol, Frontex etc.) Eligible applicants for funding from the Norway grants of 2014-21 include public bodies, non-governmental organisations, as well as international organisations (or their bodies or agencies) operating within the field of international police co-operation and combating criminal activity. Projects will receive additional points in the assessment process if:

- They target entities operating as part of the 'Justice chain'[1]
