SWEDISH INSTITUTE - call for proposals 15.11.2023 - 15.02.2023

Today, November 15, the Swedish Institute announced a call for international projects. If you want to start or expand cooperation in the field of sustainable economic, environmental and social development in the EU countries bordering the Baltic Sea and in the EU's eastern neighborhood, we encourage you to read the terms and conditions of the competition.

What is the Neighborhood Program in the Baltic Sea Region?

The SI Baltic Sea Neighborhood Program is a program that provides funding for projects in which Swedish organizations work on cross-border challenges and opportunities together with organizations from EU countries bordering the Baltic Sea and EU Eastern Partnership countries.

Funding for cooperation projects is aimed at deepening and further developing cooperation. For example, funds can be used for:

  • Build networks and platforms.
  • Develop and test models and methods.
  • Provide input to policy and strategy.
  • Build/spread knowledge and competence.

These are larger projects that will contribute to in-depth, long-term cooperation. You and your partners can apply for up to SEK 1,000,000 for a project you complete within 24 months from the start of the project.

Who can apply?

  • A legal entity based in Sweden must be the main applicant and responsible for the project’s implementation and reporting.
  • A partnership must include actors in at least three countries (including Swedish main applicant).
  • Main applicants and partner organisations can, for example, consist of:

    • Business companies
    • Business and trade organisations
