EEA and Norway Grants: the Baltics

The Baltic Research Programme has a budgetary framework of EUR 25 million and carries out three calls in the programme period 2018-2024. There will be no further calls in this period.

The overall objective of the research programme between Norway, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania is:

  • To support multilateral relations between the countries and promote close cooperation that can be continued in the longer term.
  • Cooperation is to be supplementary in nature, contributing to capacity- and knowledge-building in the Baltic countries.
  • The programme seeks to support projects with a strong regional component and to help to develop research expertise through multilateral cooperation in projects incorporating doctoral and post-doctoral fellows.
  • The programme is also to serve as a stepping stone in the process of expanding future cooperation at the European level and within the Baltic region.

The Research Council of Norway is a partner in the research programme and serves in an advisory capacity. Contact us if you have any questions.
