Funding for projects in the Baltic Sea Region and North-West Russia

Press release from Nordic Council of Ministers

The Nordic Council of Ministers has earmarked DKK 10 million for projects involving co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region and North-West Russia. All themes will be considered but special pools are also available for strengthening democracy, human rights, civil society and co-operation between NGOs. The new call for applications is now open.

On 1 April 2019, the Nordic Council of Ministers opened a new round of applications for funding from two of its programmes: the programme for Nordic-Russian Co-operation and the programme for NGOs in the Baltic Sea Region. The idea is to encourage initiatives that will build capacity and strengthen networks through activities such as informing each other of experiences and best practices.

The programme for Nordic-Russian co-operation has earmarked DKK 3.5 million for a general open call for funding applications and DKK 3 million for its Civil Society & Human Rights initiative. The NGO programme has allocated DKK 3.5 million to fund projects in the whole of the Baltic Sea Region, including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Belarus.
Deadline for applications: 20 May 2019 at 23:59:59 CET
