EEA & Norway Grants
The EEA Grants and Norway Grants represent the contribution of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to reducing economic and social disparities and to strengthening bilateral relations with 15 EU countries in Central and Southern Europe and the Baltics. Grants are available for national and local authorities, NGOs and civil society organizations, private and public enterprises, educational and research institutions, students and teaching staff and social partners. In particular, the grants for regional cooperation support the exchange of best practice among local authorities on a variety of themes.
Following the expiry of the financial mechanisms for the period 2014-2021 on 30 April 2021, the Council of the EU adopted guidelines for the negotiation of the new period 2021-2027.
On the basis of this mandate, negotiations should take place and be concluded swiftly to ensure that the financial support instruments enter into force as soon as possible, given the timetable for the next seven-year period for the policy instruments of the European Union. The new mechanism for financial contributions from the three partner countries will be aimed at reducing social and economic disparities in the European Economic Area.
