Support of bilateral cooperation within the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021
Strengthening bilateral relations between the Czech Republic and Donor States (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) is one of two main objectives of the EEA and Norway Grants. Within the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021, the Fund for bilateral relations was established to facilitate this kind of cooperation. This Fund is similar to the Fund for bilateral relations at national level under the period 2009-2014, where quite a number of partnership activities were implemented.
The aim of the Fund continues the same – to provide financial support for bilateral activities of institutions from the Czech Republic and Donor states, which enable the exchange of experience and good practice.
The total allocation of the Fund is 3.69 mill. EUR.
Open calls for applicants are envisaged, as well as pre-defined bilateral activities. A part of allocation shall be used by the Programme Operators within the respective Programmes.
The eligible activities shall contribute to the development of the bilateral cooperation (possible measures might be bilateral seminars, meetings, conferences, workshops, study trips, studies and analyses, promotional activities etc.).
At the moment, further details are still being negotiated. The open call is planned to be launched already in 2018. All relevant information for potential applicants shall be updated at the websites of the Ministry of Finance – National Focal Point.
