In May 2004,three non-EU members of the EEA - Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway - established the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism to support social and economic cohesion within the enlarged EEA.

In June 2012 second phase of the Programme will be launched. The EEA and Norwegian Financial Mechanisms (EEA and Norway Grants) aim to contribute to reducing socio-economic differences in the European Economic Area and enhancing relations between the Czech Republic and Donor States.

The present EEA/Norwegian FM 2009-2014 in the field of education builds upon the successful experience of the administration of the Financial Mechanism during the previous period. Achievements and challenges in the first phase of the Programme serve as an important source of knowledge and constitute a base for the thorough preparation of the second phase of the EEA/Norwegian FM.

Priority sectors for new phase are:

  • Environmental protection and management
  • Climate change and renewable energy
  • Civil society
  • Human and social development
  • Protecting cultural heritage
  • Carbon capture and storage
  • Green industry innovation
  • Research scholarship
  • Human and social development
  • Justice and home affairs
  • Promotion of decent work and tripartite dialogue

The Priority sector Research scholarship contains programme area called Scholarships which aims to create suitable conditions to establish international partnerships among institutions and individuals acting in the field of education. The programme offers its applicants a possibility to cooperate on international projects and to carry on mobilities.
