Funding opportunity: Grants for joint Nordic events
Nordic Innovation offers funding for activities promoting Nordic solutions for sustainable, smart and liveable cities to relevant stakeholders from outside the Nordic region.
Nordic Innovation is looking to create an ambitious showcase and export programme for Nordic solutions to sustainable urban development. We are therefore now launching a call for proposals for activities promoting Nordic solutions for sustainable, smart and liveable cities to relevant stakeholders from outside the Nordic region.
Application period: 1 June – 31 August 2017
Funding decision: 15 September 2017
Total budget: Up to NOK 1,5 million
The main ambition is to strengthen the Nordic brand, build networks between key Nordic and key international stakeholders and boost export of Nordic products and services. It is expected that a new application period will open in October 2017 pending evaluation of this first round.
What activities can be funded
We offer funding for joint Nordic workshops, seminars, exhibitions, trade fair pavilions or similar. It is possible to apply for funding for one event taking place before 2019. Both physical and digital activities can receive funding.
There are two funding categories:
Smaller events or activities (up to NOK 100,000)
Larger events or activities (up to NOK 500,000)
Activities targeting North America, China, India or activities with a global reach will be prioritised. Projects must include partners from at least three Nordic countries, and no more than 50 % of the total budget can come from Nordic Innovation.
