The Norway Grants and the EEA Grants represent Norway’s contribution towards a green, competitive and inclusive Europe.
Through the Norway Grants and the EEA Grants, Norway contributes to reducing
social and economic disparities and to strengthening bilateral relations with beneficiary
countries in Central and Southern Europe and the Baltics. Norway cooperates closely
with the EU through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Together
with the other donors, Norway has provided €3.3 billion through consecutive grant
schemes between 1994 and 2014.
Norway Grants are financed solely by Norway and are available in the countries that
joined the EU after 2003. For the period 2014-2021, the Norway Grants amount to €1.25
billion. The priorities for this period are:
- Innovation, Research, Education, Competitiveness and Decent Work
- Social Inclusion, Youth Employment and Poverty Reduction
- Environment, Energy, Climate Change and Low Carbon Economy
- Culture, Civil Society, Good Governance and Fundamental Rights
- Justice and Home Affairs
