Coming soon: Call for project proposals in the field of education under Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014-2021

Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy is pleased to announce the upcoming ‘Call for proposals for co-financing of projects under the programme Education, Scholarships, Apprenticeship and Youth Entrepreneurship’, a programme supported and implemented under the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014-2021. The call is to be published on 14 May 2021 in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia. The available funding under the call will amount to EUR 11.3 million. The project grant rate will be up to 100% of total eligible expenditures of a project.

The aim of the programme Education, Scholarships, Apprenticeship and Youth Entrepreneurship (short: Education – Enhancing Human Capital) is to enhance human capital by building and strengthening knowledge and competences. The programme also gives special attention to fostering and enhancing collaboration between Slovenian and Norwegian institutions involved in the programme.

Applicants with project proposals that promote institutional cooperation at all levels of formal and informal education, contribute to improving the supportive environment for disadvantaged target groups and to improving work-life balance will be invited to apply for funding.

The call for proposals will also pursue the two overall objectives of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism, i.e. to contribute to the reduction of economic and social disparities in the European Economic Area, and to strengthen bilateral relations between Slovenia and Norway as the Donor State.

The text of the call for proposals and the relevant documentation will be available here from the date of the publication of the call in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia.

The deadline for submission of project proposals will be 30 September at 12:00 CET. Project applications will have to be submitted via electronic monitoring system eMS.
