Slovakia will sign the memorandums of understanding with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein on implementing the EEA Grants and Norway Grants. This will allow it to use the money from the so-called Norwegian funds also in the next period.

“It will be already the third edition of these grants in Slovakia, thanks to which the country will be able to draw some €113 million until 2021,” the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry informed the TASR newswire.

The sum is about €30 million higher than in the previous period. The state will contribute 15 percent from its own budget to finance the programmes.

Slovakia is second of altogether 15 countries that are able to use the Norwegian funds, TASR wrote.

The money can be used to finance projects in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovations, climate changes, cultural heritage, the fight against gender-related violence, local development, Roma inclusion, and judiciary transparency. A significant part of the contribution is comprised for funds for civic associations.
