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.
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. The deadline for the applications round 2021 is Monday, 1st of February and the total amount of available funds is about 9.5 million euro.
Flexibility of Nordplus rules 2021 due to Covid-19
To meet the challenges posed by Covid-19, the Nordplus administration approved a number of temporary changes to the Nordplus rules in 2020 . As long as the pandemic is rampant, these changes can be implemented.
Projects partners are however encouraged to plan for cooperation and activities as normal. These projects can then be adapted according to the restrictions which follow from Covid-19, for example postponing travels or replacing physical meetings with virtual ones. The main elements of the temporary changes can be found here.
