The Nordplus programme of the Nordic Council of Ministers invites Nordic and Baltic organisations working with or involved in education and training to apply for funding in the application round of 2021.
During 2021-2022, the Nordplus highlight will be a greener future. It is the new Nordic vision that the Nordic region will become the most integrated and sustainable region in the world by 2030, and this vision has decided the choice of highlight. The highlight entails that the Nordplus programme encourages organisations to engage in projects connected to environmental issues.
- The total amount of available funds is about 9.5 million euro.
The main elements of the temporary changes are:
- The projects can change “regular mobilities” for , “digital/virtual mobilities”.
- Approved funding for “digital/virtual activities” can be used for direct costs such as IT-support service or to purchase needed hardware and/or software or indirect costs such as training for participants.
- In collaboration projects: Costs linked to on-line meetings replacing planned physical meetings in cooperation projects will normally be accepted.
- Beneficiaries with open grant agreements will also have the option of extending the project period to be able to carry out postponed activities.
- In special cases the “force majeure” rule can be implemented.
- If you – or your organisation – are working within the field of education and training, you can now apply for Nordplus funding for transnational student, pupil or teacher mobility, as well as joint project and network activities between educational organisations in Denmark, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and Åland.
