Norwegian grants represent Norway’s contribution to a green, competitive and inclusive Europe.
Through Norwegian grants, Norway contributes to the reduction of economic and social differences and to the strengthening of mutual relations with recipient states in Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltics.
Norway cooperates closely with the EU through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Together with other donors, Norway gradually provided 3.3 billion euros between 1994 and 2014 through grant schemes.
Norwegian grants are financed exclusively by Norway and are available in countries that joined the EU after 2003. For the period 2014-2021, Norwegian grants amount to 1.25 billion euros. The priorities of this period are:
- Innovation, research, education and competitiveness
- Social inclusion, youth employment and poverty eradication
- Environment, energy, climate change and low carbon economy
- Culture, civil society, good governance and fundamental rights
- Justice and Home Affairs
All projects are co-financed in the amount of 15% from the state budget of the Slovak Republic.
